2 Are Women the Stronger Sex?

Are Women the Stronger Sex?

Josette Sona | Psychology


Ladies, never stop believing that you have honor, integrity, and strength. This book confirms this, giving examples of why this is true. Women have had to endure abuse throughout history but have still remained strong; raising families, positively contributing to society (even though they often don't get credit for their accomplishments). This book, years in the making, gives girls and young women a better understanding of who they are and the kinds of people they may have to deal with in their lives. As we're not born knowing what is explained in this short book, hopefully it will provide wisdom, helping women to make wise choices in life. The understanding of a negative situation often helps us to make peace with it and experience forgiveness - which ultimately benefits everyone.

19 The case for women's suffrage

The case for women's suffrage

Brouhman Villiers | Gender Studies


Women's suffrage or woman suffrage[1] is the right of women to vote and to run for office. The expression is also used for the economic and political reform movement aimed at extending these rights to women[2] and without any restrictions or qualifications such as property ownership, payment of tax, or marital status. The movement's modern origins can be attributed to late-18th century France, although full suffrage did not come to France or the French-speaking Canadian province of Quebec. Limited voting rights were gained by some women in Sweden, Britain, and some western U.S. states in the 1860s. In 1893, the British colony of New Zealand became the first self-governing nation to extend the right to vote to all adult women, and the women of the nearby colony of South Australia achieved t...

20 A Short History of Women´s Rights

A Short History of Women´s Rights

Eugene A. Hecker | Gender Studies


Perhaps a word on the status of women in slavery among the Germanic nations will not be out of place. The new nations looked upon a slave as chattel, much as the Romans did. If a wrong was done a slave woman, her master received a recompense from the aggressor, but she did not, for to hold property was denied her. -from "Women among Germanic Peoples" The fight for women's rights-particularly with regards to the right to vote-made such enormous strides between 1910, when the first edition of the book was published, and 1914, when its second edition was released with an update on the effort, that within the space of those few brief years, it became almost a historical document, not a rundown of current affairs. But that second edition-of which this is a replica-remains an important document ...

23 On the Subjection of Women

On the Subjection of Women

John Stuart Mill. | Academic Articles


The Subjection of Women is the title of an essay written by John Stuart Mill in 1869,[possibly jointly with his wife Harriet Taylor Mill, stating an argument in favour of equality between the sexes. At the time it was published in 1869, this essay was an affront to European conventional norms of views on the status of men and women. John Stuart Mill credited his wife, Harriet Taylor Mill, with co-writing the essay. While some scholars agreed by 2009 that John Stuart Mill was the sole author,it is also noted that some of the arguments are similar to Harriet Taylor Mill's essay The Enfranchisement of Women which was published in 1851.

39 Women in Rome

Women in Rome

Alfred Brittain | Gender Studies


Freeborn women in ancient Rome were citizens (cives),[2] but could not vote or hold political office.[3] Because of their limited public role, women are named less frequently than men by Roman historians. But while Roman women held no direct political power, those from wealthy or powerful families could and did exert influence through private negotiations.[4] Exceptional women who left an undeniable mark on history range from the semi-legendary Lucretia and Claudia Quinta, whose stories took on mythic significance; fierce Republican-era women such as Cornelia, mother of the Gracchi, and Fulvia, who commanded an army and issued coins bearing her image; women of the Julio-Claudian dynasty, most prominently Livia, who contributed to the formation of Imperial mores; and the empress Helena, a d...

In the face of danger and atrocity, they bravely joined the resistance, smuggled food into the ghettos and made wrenching sacrifices to keep their children alive. Their courage and compassion continue to inspire us to this day”. BAN KI-MOON, UNITED NATIONS SECRETARY-GENERAL
