Roman Girls did not go to school. They were taught at home by their mothers. Also the subjects they would have been expected to learn and be good at were very different to that of the boys. Spinning, weaving, music and sewing were considered the important skills women needed, and were taught to Roman Girls.
Roman Girls were taught how to run a good household and how to be a good wife. They would have been taught how to run a kitchen, even if they did not have to cook themselves as this could be done by slaves in the wealthier Roman Households.
For recreation Roman Girls would play with rags dolls and dolls made out of wax or clay. Some of the Roman tou dolls even had jointed arms and legs that moved, which made them more realistic.
Roman Girls also played board and ball games, and some even lifted weights.
Roman Girls were not allowed to fall in love and choose their own husbands - a marriage would have been arranged for them by their families.
