Denied women's rights to make decisions for themselves.
During the 18th century, women were fighting for their voice to be heard. They were able to start doing this by having their works published.
Although Eve ate the apple and gave it to Adam, he had been on earth longer and received God's orders directly.
"What weakness offered,strength must have refused; Being lord of all, the greater was his shame"(Lainer 476).
Eve made her mistake out of love, but has the blame solely placed upon her.
"Deeds, not words"(Suffragette).
Women's rights were constantly talked about within the government, but there was never action that took place.
"Don't bother arresting them. Let their husbands deal with them"(Suffragette).
Many women were shamed by their families and their communities for fighting for their rights.
Today, women continue to fight to be heard. A lot of issues have been resolved using peaceful protests and marches, but there is still more to be resolved.
