Society

Are you a Woman??? Than you DEFINITELY WANT TO COME HERE!!!!

We in the Middle Colonies believe in the ABILITIES of Women. Just take a look at this article written by John Peter Zenger back in May of this year (1935 in case you forgot) in the New-York Weekly JOURNAL.


He states:

Learning and Knowledge are Perfections in us, not as we are Men, but as we are reasonable Creatures, in which Order, of Beings the Female World is upon the same level with the Male. We ought to consider in this Particular, not what is the Sex, but what is the Species to which they belong.
