    Some fact suggest, in ancient days, women got more right in polygamy society, ur thought?

    Ancient Asia/Middle East polygamy law state, marriage require both party approval, u can have only 1 legal wife, if she allow, u can have mistresses, which require legally marriage and she will be ur secondary wife, but can't replace 1st wife, when she live, because secondary wives, are mistresses, can't have married or unmarried mistresses, without ur 1st wife's permission. Ancient Europe only allow 1 wife, but can have mistress if wife don't approve, treat mistress as wife, over wife, without divorcing wife, no marital obligation to mistress, sometme  no need of woman consent for marriage,

    No, they did not have more rights in a society where a man could add more wives if not happy with the first.
    The threat of competition lowered women's status in society and kept them beneath men.
    Women's equality started when he could only have one legal wife, which for most men meant he had to treat her well to be able to live with her. Women's equality has only existed where women had monogamy, the only nations that were ruled by queens in their own right barring ONE example in Egypt and rare other females ruling in the name of a son.

      Just thought I should add (not enough space above) it was also legal for one woman to have more husband, via same polygamy law principle, just most women aren't interest in marrying more then 1 man.

      Polyandry, having more than one husband is VERY rare in human societies whereas more than one wife was common. And that was often due to one woman marrying several brothers to poor to have their own wives - so not great for her.
