    democracy didn’t actually exist in ancient greece – democracy literally transliterated from the ancient greek means ‘rule of the people’. women weren’t enfranchised in ancient greece, therefore democracy cannot have existed, unless your teacher is suggesting that women aren’t people.

    True democracy only existed in the city-state of Athens. See Peloponnesian War, Gang of 39, Plato’s crito aplogia and phaedo.
