In this essay, she states that women are just as capable of reason as men are, and because of this fact, deserved the same education and rights as they received. Despite her reputation reflecting poorly on her piece, this does not change the fact that her ideas were held with high regard; even if no one agreed with her lifestyle, her ideas on women’s education could not be disputed. She herself may have not been involved in the feminist movement, but her ideas in Rights of Woman influenced many writers up until modern
Once their decisions violate the authority of the social rules, they would be punished. Queen Vashti, as one of the most evident example, is accused of being not only refuting the command of her husband, but also assaulting the rules of patriarchal society.

Therefore, girls had some respect and love toward the father. Because even if in the society they were not equal to men and the pater decided about every aspect of their lives, under his power they were equal to the boys and if they behaved well in return the pater was respectful to them.

Hence, in order for men to sustain their power and authority over the women, fear is injected into the society as a medium for conformity. In other words, fear among women is essential so that they would comply to whatever norms and beliefs the society uphold.

They want to see you grow up to be respectful of those around you; to give you more opportunities than you could have had if you continued to show disrespect and no remorse for those around you.
