General Requirements for Free Women
|Goreans, in their
simplistic fashion, often contend, categorically, that man is naturally
free and woman is naturally slave. But even for them the issues are far
more complex than these simple formulations would suggest. For example,
there is no higher person, nor one more respected, than the Gorean free
woman. Goreans do believe, however, that every woman has a natural master
or set of masters, with respect to whom she could not help but be a complete
and passionate slave girl. These men occur in her dreams and fantasies.
She lives in terror that she might meet one in real life.

- is not acting according to the standards and station of a Free Woman, and will be treated as a barbarian. Typically, the only weapons carried by Free Women are those which can be concealed under her robes: knives, daggers, and small pins coated with poison.
According to the scrolls, there are no women warriors, and only Panther Girls carry weapons. If you claim to be a Panther Girl, then be sure you comport yourself to that standard. Do not attempt to challenge a Man. You would be killed or enslaved. It is that simple.
The Council will not recognize Free Women as Warriors. Free Women on Gor are required to abide by the protocols as set forth on this Homepage. Provided they are invited in to the Tavern for a special event, this grants them with certain protections while in the tavern. Provided they maintain their clothing and demeanor as expected, Free Women cannot be collared in the tavern. This grants them with certain protections while in the tavern.
Gorean Shores further recognizes that females can be Panther Girls rather than Free Women, However, Panther Girls are accorded no protection, and may be challenged in duel at any time. If challenged, the criteria of "Realism" is going to weigh heavily against a Panther Girl, because unless she is the ultimate female fighter, she simply could not match a trained Gorean Warrior. A Panther Girl who loses her duel may either be killed or collared at her opponent's discretion. Likewise, should she be victorious, she may either kill or collar her opponent.
If you claim to be a Panther Girl, you had better know what you are doing, and exactly how to act. A Panther Girl in Port Kar is a very rare thing. Ex-Panthers like former slaves should petition the Council for admittance in Gorean Shores as a FreeWoman to stop any problems before they happen.

A Free Woman who
is force-collared will be given the choice of either accepting said collaring
and submitting herself to the Master as slave, or departing from the tavern
permanently and being placed on a tavern ban. It is her choice. However,
resistance from a Free Woman to a force-collaring is futile at best, and
foolish at worst. A trained Gorean Warrior can easily overcome any defence
by a Free Woman and strip and bind her before she can defend herself.
Free Women exist in Gorean Shores at the will of Men. If the Free Woman
has a guard and that guard is challenged under the Battle Rules, the guard
is expected to accept the challenge and the Free Woman is expected to
willingly submit to the challenger if her guard is defeated. If she does
not, she will be banned. It is noted herein that infractions by Free Women
which would constitute valid grounds for force-collaring must be acted
upon within a reasonable time after such incident occurs. Further, it
is not mandatory that a Free Woman be collared if she acts or dresses
inappropriately. Such force-collaring is at the will and pleasure of the
Men present. Some Men are tolerant, some are not. The Free Woman accepts
the risks incumbent with her activities when she acts in a manner inappropriate
to her station.
