The Greeks of Plato's time were ahead of their times in many, many ways, but not in matters of gender equality.

In the history (as opposed to legend) of ancient Greece in the fourth and fifth centuries BC and before, female rulers who exercised power in their own right were few and far between.

In the modern context of course, the principle applies to people regardless of gender.
