Like men, women could buy, sell and manage property.
They had ownership rights and could acquire commodities such as livestock, money, goods, slaves and servants.
Egyptian women could work outside of the home and build wealth. While Mesopotamian Women could not exercise much personal sovereignty in ancient Mesopotamia.
