One day, the mother of the king of Sparta visited Corinth. A very wealthy place back then. The New York or the Hong Kong of our times, per se or so to speak.
And the ladies of Corinth started making some fun or to tease her by saying that the women of Sparta are the ones who govern Sparta, since they do whatever they want to their men.
And She answered : “Yes, because we bring men to life”.
