The article deals with issues of interpretation of iconographic material with female figures from Classical Age of Ancient Greece. In the study, I try to analyze the material sources, interpret the obtained information by using gender and feminist perspective, and discuss how these theories could influence our knowledge about the lives of women in ancient Greece.  The scenes with female figures on the red-figure vases and relief sculptures are using as the main iconographic sources in the article. These scenes are often interpreted as confirming the oppression of women, who were confined to women’s quarters and exploited as free labor. I want to refer how our view of life could influences procedures and conclusions in restoring the lives of women in the past.
