On the birth of a girl, their father soon decide their husband that who is going to get married with his own daughter. Subsequently, when a women get married, she is completely dependant on his husband and also a women were expected to follow whatever their husband told them. The time of American revolution was very significant because it bring change socially. On the other hand, politically it did not bring a lot of changes during the time of revolutionary war. It was the first time in the history of American Revolution, when women get a chance to take a job of their husband since their husband went to the war.
Thirdly, most wives in the late 19th-20th century didn’t have much of an education, because they were forced to stay home and take care of domestic tasks. Today, they receive the same education as their husbands, and are treated equally, if not more respectfully than men are. They have the same rights and freedoms, but unfortunately are paid less, and are given lower-ranked positions than men. Thus, it is better to be a wife in the 21st century rather than have to face the difficulties wives had to face in earlier times. Rather than have to face these obstacles, and be treated worse than they deserve, being a wife in the 21st century brings women much more freedom.
Unlike Athenian women who were taught simple housewives roles such as, taking care of the children, cooking and raised to be housewives who were very dependent on the men in the house. Spartan women were raised and lived in an environment where Men were treated equally on the battlefield. Women worked hard alongside the men to prove they were just as hardworking and dedicated to Spartan society. Spartan Women would disown their children if they were cowards in battle, Plutarch was quoted talking about Damatria, a Spartan mother who had found out about her son’s cowardly actions and decided to deal with that herself “Damatria heard that her son had been a coward and unworthy of her, and when he arrived, she made away with him” (Plut. Lacae.
She played a huge role in the women’s rights movement and became one of its founders. Elizabeth Cady Stanton’s refusal to compromise on Women’s Rights inspired many other women to follow her example and led to an important change in the history of the United States, and that is suffrage for women. Throughout history, women tended to keep getting less and less rights. Roman women had almost as many rights as men, and had many of the rights that women in the seventeenth century were denied. Married women had the right to enter into contracts and own and dispose of property, as well as having certain limited rights.
Life for women in the colonial society was determined by their wealth, religion, and statues. Most of the things were similar for the women, they would have to run the house and or farm, raise the children, and maintain. Woman were married in their early twenties and would have large numbers of children. Around eight children were normal but due to sickness and other things, up to five or so of the children would have been dead before reaching their teens. Men held their normal ego and expectations of themselves but woman were looked at differently, unlike Europe where they were the weaker of the two sex.
Sparta had an oligarchy, which means it was ruled by a council of people. A democracy is a type of government ruled by the citizens. The third difference was that girls and women in Sparta had more rights than other Greek girls and women. In Sparta, women could own land and go where they please. The Athenians allowed wealthy girls to go to school, but most were expected to stay at home and learn how to manage the household.
Adding on to other limitations, women almost had no freedom in their marriage. Before the women’s rights movement, when a woman is married the “husband and wife are one person” but “that person is the husband” (Doc 7). Once a woman is married, her rights and property were governed by the husband. Married women could not make wills or dispose of any property without their husband’s consent to do so. This showed that they were invisible even in their marriage, The women’s movement promoted the support which eventually resulted in the Married Women’s Property Act.
Women were to worship their husbands and weren't allowed to own property. Women were suppose to be married as soon as they hit puberty. Women in both the Han Dynasty and the Rome Empire were treated similarly and but still differently. In both civilizations women played the roles in keeping the house clean and taking care of children. When comparing both civilizations you’ll notice that the women in rome were treated more fairly than in China.
The role of women in ancient times varied throughout, depending on the place and area in the world, in which women had different roles and impacts on their own society. The civilizations in Mesopotamia, Ancient Egypt, Ancient India, and Ancient China all displayed diverse roles of women in their society but among these civilizations, I believe living in Ancient Egypt is the most suitable civilization living as a woman.
Whichever wive the man and his family chooses he gets. Women are told that they should feel lucky if a man chooses to marry them. We see an example of an arranged marriage in the film when we are introduced to Darshini, who is the first daughter in law and Sita who is the second daughter in law to Dadi. Darshini and Sita had arranged marriages with Dadi 's two sons. The process of Darshini and Sita being arranged into marriage is that both of the women were forced to leave their homes and start their new lives in Dadi’s home.
