Therefore, de Gouges calls for education for women which would liberate them from the conventional private domain of family, and hence, would ensure their survival (De Gouges 1791). Furthermore, de Gouges knew that true gender equality can only be achieved with the recognition of men. This is espoused in the social contract. The contract sought to bring two mature adults in a marriage to come into an agreement that equality should exist. De Gouges wrote on equal ownership and distribution of property as a means to provide security to women (De Gouges, 1791).
We allow people like Locke to show their controversial but still valid ideas like the one about how Kings and Queens should not have complete rule over a country which Locke was persecuted for back in England and by making sure that all ideas are tolerated we are able to progress ourselves further than the other countries that restrict expression and discovery. Our tolerance allows book publishers to thrive and get all types ideas around Europe as well as making them dependent on us as their publishing house. By Europe depending on us for so many things and by them also seeing amazing inventions and discoveries being done in this country we are becoming golden to not only the people of our country but also the people of
The Age of Reason In Europe, during the Age of Enlightenment or the Age of Reason, many philosophers gathered together to discuss their different but similar ideas to help shape the world we live in today. In the late 17th and 18th century, four enlightenment philosophers named John Locke, Voltaire, Adam Smith, and Mary Wollstonecraft focused on the same main idea. They believed in individual rights and presented their arguments through religion, government, economics, and equality for women. A philosopher named John Locke believed that people should be free to do what they want, but if their choices are poor, then they should be ready to face the consequences. In his justification, he asserts that “We must consider what state men are naturally in... a state of perfect freedom to order their actions and dispose
A vindication of the rights of woman was the first feminist treatise. In “A vindication of the rights of women” Wollstonecraft argues that true freedom necessitates the equality of both man and women; claims that judging or emotion is superior to passion, and seeks to accepts women to acquire strength of mind and body and aims to convince women that what had traditionally been regarded as womanly virtues are synonymous with weakness. Wollstonecraft`s in support of woman said that education is the key for women to achieve a sense of self-respect that can enable them to live to their full capabilities. The work of Wollstonecraft`s attack thinkers like Jean-Jacques Rousseau who, even while espousing the revolutionary notion that men should not have power over each other, denied the basic rights claimed for women. A Vindication of the Rights of Woman is today considered as the foundational texts to liberal
All these women came from different social, economic and socio-political background. Harriet Taylor Mill was given the opportunity to lay the foundation for feminism, while hiding under her husband’s wing, she was a relatively middle to high class individual who focused on issues that women like her faced. She believed that equality was simply based on equal opportunity for both sexes simply based on skill not gender, as both could do things equally well. Gloria Feltd argued and fought for women’s reproductive rights, as she was a teenage mother herself. She just as Taylor Mill had a middle to high class background, she believed among other things that equality would come with reproductive rights for all.
Feminism is the political movement that achieved social, political and economic equality of the sexes and to change the hierarchical power relations between the sexes. We can say that Mary Wollstonecraft is the mather of feminism is not wrong. She said "if woman is not breeded with education as a head-friends of a man, some obstructions are formed on the spreading of information and virtue, because reality should be accesible otherwise it will be uneffective in the general application." and she makes this sentence a rule. O 'Neill argued that Wollstonecraft learned literacy that is a privilege male-specific in that period and she refused the marriage that is only means of living for girls, and then she left from her home.
Thomas Jefferson stressed that liberty and equality were natural human right and that every one deserves them (“Philosophy & Philosophers.” Philosophy & Philosophers, www.the-philosophy.com/). Montesquieu was also very influential he was guided by a respect for the human person and the dedication to political and liberty of modern political views to move forward (“Philosophy & Philosophers.” Philosophy & Philosophers, www.the-philosophy.com/). Today's government would be dramatically different if it was not for these and enlightenment. Life would also different if the enlightenment never took place we would have not close as much freedoms we have
This leveled the playing field, by not putting one over another. Due to the impact it had on Britain, other documents were drawn that expressed similar rights. In the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, it states, “...recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice, and peace in the world,” (D). The base for democracy and peace is having equal rights and allowing for equal opportunities. This Declaration acknowledges that equal rights for all is the only way to accomplish anything, because it allows everyone
His musical influence spread the Italian musical style which at that time dominated Europe. Moreover, his opera’s focused on social and moral issues which affected the European society and their musical authority disregarded the social class divide which was common during that period. His orchestrated musical style influenced his follower Beethoven who commercialized the opera music platform and gained success all over the divided European social class. Mozart’s influence across Europe spread through royal piano performances in addressing social and political issues, a factor that highly contributed to the modernization in Europe. Conclusion The Scientific Revolution and Enlightenment, therefore, played an important role in the political civilization of Europe by inspiring the spirit of curiosity in many fields of learning and offering an investigative approach in determining concepts and ideas.
“I declare to you that woman must not depend upon the protection of man, but must be taught to protect herself, and there I take my stand.” Words that were conveyed by Susan B.
