  female oppression

  no one who has studied history, even superficially, will for a moment dispute the statement that there has brooded very steadily over the female half of the human family an air of repression, of limitation, of hindrance , of disability, of gloom, of servitude. if there have been epochs during which women have been regarded equal to men, they have been brief and abnormal.

  among the hindus, woman was the slave of man , forbidden to speak the language of her master, and compelled to use the patois of the slaves. the hebrews pronounced her an afterthought of the deity, and the mother of all evils. the greek law regarded her as a child, and held her in life-long tutelage. the greek philosophers proclaimed her a “monster”,“ an accidental production”. medieval councils declared her unfit for instruction. the early christian fathers denounced her as a“ noxious animal”, a“painted temptress”, a“ necessary evil”,“a desirable calamity”, and a“ domestic peril”.

  in marriage she has been a serf; as a mother she has been robbed of her children; in public instruction she has been ignored; in labor she has been a menial, and then inadequately compensated; civilly she has been a minor, and politically she has had no existence. she has been the equal of man only when punishment and the payment of taxes were in question.
