There is no doubt that the ancient (and modern) Greek cultures restricted the role of women in many ways. However, that doesn't mean there weren't strong women or places where women had some important role. Perhaps you might find a tour focused on such places to be inspiring. Here are some of the highlights.

The Areopagus in Athens was an encampment of the Amazons

The valley of the Muses is where nine goddesses inspired the arts

Lesbos. Sappho. Of course.

The cult of Artemis at Brauron and its significant annual festival of women

Delphi, the home of the Pythia, the oracle and a cave where women gathered
