Struggle For Equality Throughout history Women have been subjected to cruel and unfair treatment in an inequal society designed to oppress the physically inferior woman Mens superior strength has too often debacled a womans ability to strive for success and reach ones full potential A mans strength is an insufficient reason to suppress the powerful voice and intellect of women Throughout their struggle for equality being oppressed women have shown that they have the drive to perservere and come out on top in an unjust society John Stuart Mills work On The Subjection of Women tells the story or how bad it was for woman in his time 1869 women were slaves of men they had no property rights so far as the law was concerned except under rare circumstances everything a woman owned really belonged to her husband if she inherited anything for example that inheritance immediately became the property of the husband In some ways women were even in a worse position than slaves slaves had somewhere to go after their work was done which they could call their own Mills response to all this is to urge a new principle of equality of the sexes that also means freedom for women at least to the same extent as men have freedom in society since the principle includes equality of power In 1869 women had little opportunity for success but this was all in 1869 In todays society women have the same opportunities as men If they have the intellectual prowess and desire a woman today can reach her full potential
