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.

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
