Yeah, no. Spartan women were not only allowed an education, the right to own land, and the right to control independent finances, but during their adolescent years they were required to undergo the same physical trials as their male counterparts. Wrestling, javelin, and other stereotypical male events of the period were a part of every Spartan female's development.
