作者晩年の喜劇の傾向を示した作で,社会思想への諷刺を含む.現実には社会的地位のはなはだ低かったアテナイ婦人たちが,「女大将」プラクサゴラの策により男装して議場に忍び込み,政権を男の手から奪い,完全な共産制と婦人の共有とを決議する.空前の新制度の実施によって人間の弱点が滑稽かつ皮肉に暴露されてゆく.

Assemblywomen (Greek: Ἐκκλησιάζουσαι Ekklesiazousai; also translated as, Congresswomen, Women in Parliament, Women in Power, and A Parliament of Women) is a comedy written by the Greek playwright Aristophanes in 391 BCE.[3]

Plot[edit]
The play begins with Praxagora emerging from a house on an Athenian street before daybreak. She is wearing a false beard, men’s clothing, and is carrying a walking stick and a lit lantern. The chorus of Athenian women enter one by one, all dressed in similar costume. In order to be more convincing, some women developed tans and stopped shaving their armpits to appear more masculine. One woman brings a basket full of yarn in order to get some work done as the assembly fills up, to which Praxagora chastises her for this decision as it will ruin their cover.
