Injustice Towards Women

Women's Rights

The behavior of the women of these times does support the ideal that men believed they were superior and there for would force there way upon women.
The ideal that man is mightier than woman is expressed here. Which supports that men believe that they are far superior to women. Which , in their minds, allows them to treat women however they want.
Women are being treated as if they weren't people. It is seen everywhere from local interactions all the way to actions taken by the government. They are basically being treated as a house pet that must be taken care of to survive.
Women were seen as fragile and incapable of handling bad things. It was believed that they needed the protection of man if they were to make it in the world. Not even being recognized as a person.
