Once upon a time at Rome a small matter, which happened among the dangers of great wars, was the cause of a great struggle. Two tribunes wanted to repeal the Oppian Law. This law ordered that not any woman have more gold than a half ounce and that she not use (wear) multicolored clothing, and that she not travel by carriage in the city unless for the sake of public sacrifices. The Capitoline Hill was being filled with a crowd of men favoring and of men opposing the law. Women were able to be kept in their homes neither by any authority nor by modesty, nor by command of their husbands. They were blocking all roads of the city and approaches into the Forum. The mob of women was being increased daily; for they were also coming together from small Copyright © 2016 by the National Latin Exam Continued on the back towns. The consul M. Porcius Cato said these words: “Men, if each of you had retained the power of the husband over his wife, we would have less trouble with these women. With this law repealed, what will they not try?” Valerius, one of the tribunes, spoke in opposition: “The Republic is now in a better situation. Elegance and adornment and culture are the insignia of women; let them rejoice and glory in these things.” The law was repealed!

You all feel one thing, you are eager for one thing, to turn aside the efforts of Marcus Antonius from the Republic, to put out his madness, to crush his boldness… The time has come, Romans, altogether later than was worthy for the Roman people, but nevertheless so overdue that it is not able to be put aside by an hour. There was some unavoidable misfortune, as I will thus speak, which we have tolerated in whatever way it had to be tolerated; now if there will be any (misfortune), it will be of our own choice. It is not divine right that the Roman people be slaves, whom the immortal gods have wished to rule over all races… Either it is right that you conquer, Romans, that which assuredly you will attain because of both your loyalty and such great unity, or (that you do) whatever you want rather than be slaves. Other nations are able to endure servitude, liberty is the property of the Roman people.
