Why did Diana's mom say she lead a war for freedom in Wonder Woman? Freedom from what exactly? I thought the Amazons were created to live with man? When were they ever enslaved?

I thought the Amazons were created to live with man? When were they ever enslaved?

During the war with Ares

Ares refused to give up his hold on mankind and created an army to battle the gods and the Amazons and at this point we see them enslaved.

The script..

                      ANTIOPE (V.O.)
           Ares refused to give up his hold
          on mankind. Tightening his grip,
          he turned them against us.

         ARES AND HIS ARMY OF MEN lead Hippolyta and the other
         Amazons out of a BURNING CITY in SHACKLES and CHAINS.


         When Zeus led the gods to our
         defense, Ares killed them, one-by-one....... until only Zeus himself              
         remained.

              HIPPOLYTA breaks the chains between her bracelets!

                          ANTIOPE (V.O.)
          Your mother, the Amazon Queen, led
          a revolt that freed us all from
          enslavement.

    would you please explain the script or share some link in which it describes clearly. – Insha Darwaish Nov 24 '18 at 14:45
  • It's pretty clear from what I said. They were enslaved during the war with Ares. I don't see how I can make it any clearer – Paulie_D Nov 24 '18 at 20:59
