This is the first philological-critical edition and detailed investigation of a literary disputation between two women conducted in the Sumerian language, written approx. 4,000 years ago in Babylonia. Their debate on the status of womanhood finally ends up in court. “Two Women B” thus provides unique insights about the construction of ideal womanhood and procedural law in ancient Babylonia.
