The real role of Free Women in Gorean society is one of the most misinterpreted aspects on Gor. This misunderstanding is constantly being revived by various factors. First of all, by the language in most books that all women should be slaves. Second, a cursory reading of the books reveals that almost all of the important characters of free women, who are often haughty, end up as slaves. And third, there is the myth that male dominance on Gor is absolute. These three reasons combine to twist the reader's view of the free women of Gor. It is only through a deeper study of the Books of Gor that one understands the true complexity of the role of free women on Gor. They are far more than potential slaves.
The vast majority of women on Gor are free women. Only 2-3% of all women are actually slaves. This statistic alone speaks volumes about the status of free women in Gorean society. Despite all the rhetoric, Goreans do not fall into such platitudes and enslave most of their wives. They don't even enslave a significant proportion of their wives. There must be compelling reasons to support this attitude. Free women must be able to fill important roles that slave women cannot fill. The demand for these roles must exceed the demand for slaves.

"I am a free woman," she said. "I can speak as I please."
I could not gainsay her in this. She was free. She could, accordingly, say what she wished, and without requiring permission.
Mercenaries of Gor
Now we went together towards a new adventure, which was not long in coming.
Hannah was so annoyed by the stench of the whale carcass and her injuries, due to the fact that nobody was responsible for the disposal of the disgraced body, the danger of an epidemic was getting closer that she decided to take matters into her own hands. Oh. What stupidity she had ridden this time again!!
It must have been at night because I didn't find out what had happened until the next morning when the town crier announced the latest night's news. A fire in the Dock Quarter had got out of control and spread to several apartment buildings. Luckily no people were hurt or killed. Unfortunately, it quickly became clear how the fire started.
Our Hannah had gotten Tharalion Oil, Loki knows where from, and had poured it over the carcass and set it on fire. Sparks then jumped on the houses and some were ablaze. Skand the Ubar was so angry that he immediately suspected Hannah and interrogated her. Hannah didn't deny anything but neither was she aware of the guilt of having done wrong, but rather the Robin Hood of Tira !!Disease prevention and rescue of the citizens from an Urt plague!!
I really hoped that Ubar would understand, but the very next day my fears came true, an arrest warrant against Hannah and a court will take up this case. It's a pity that I don't have my exam to become a lawyer yet, otherwise I would stand by Hannah, so all I can do is hope for a lenient magistrate. Oh yes, magistrates, Lady Arella. A new magistrate was lately appointed, old Sir Vidal wishing to retire. It is surprising that I did not find any announcements about a decision by the High Council and the appointment of the new magistrate. So this time another city decision went past Darian. Sure we are NEW in town but not INVISIBLE!!! So we wish Lady Arella well in her work and hope that she is up to the challenges of a magistrate.To what extent she has authority to hold this office is beyond our knowledge, but we have faith in the Council and in Ubar.
