E is for Equality
Ancient Egyptian society was a fairly equal society to live in, especially for women. It is believed that they enjoyed the same legal and economic rights as men. However, if you belonged to a lower social class, you would have less rights than someone of a higher social class.

When a woman got married, the wife kept her independence and still kept control of her own assets. However, the husband controlled any joint property, but it was known that a share of this belonged to his wife, and if the marriage ended she could collect her share. If the husband died the wife got a third of her husband's property.
