During the age of Late Republic the women scope of action cover also the public
contest, like the forum, where usually the men spent the politically life and that traditionally
were the sole male enjoyment. The paper allowed to analyse if the presence of
matronae in metters of res publica brings them to appropriate over time even in communicative
mode indispensable to such kind of activities.
Thanks to the historical sources we considered three of the most representative
events, dated between 43rd and 42nd b.C.; we analyse the figures of Fulvia, Giulia
and Ortensia, representatives of the Roman aristocracy in a period of innovation. Our
propose it is also to study similarities and differences between these kind of facts, the
evolution of female rule and the question of dependence in the late republican events
and in proto and meso republican age focusing the reability of sources.
