J S Mill VS H G Wells In the coming of the 20th century many attitudes began to change Views traditionally held started to be questioned This is most evident in the literature of the time Many wrote about social change in various forms Mill in his book The Subjection of Women challenged the long held belief that women were inferior He used examples from society to show that other injustices were righted and so to should the subjection of women Wells book The Time Machine was a warning to people about the consequences of further social wrongs Together they lay an argument for change The main topic in The Subjection of Women is obviously the treatment of women Despite this Mill also comments on other aspects of society He does not solely concentrate on womens rights This allows a comparison to other works about different subjects Wells only briefly addresses women in his book but we can still compare the two on different ideas Mill starts discussing how power is doled out He submits that in older times power was taken by those with greater force Might makes right is the gist of his argument He calls this a primitive condition Mill 7 In more civilized times he contends this should not be so The need for physical superiority is gone and this tradition of dominance over women should be ended Wells also addresses this in his work In the future his time traveler sees that future humans are still subject to the idea that physical superiority still counts The Eloi are delicate creatures that no longer are strong or brave There hasnt been any need for physical readiness for generations of Eloi This ends up being there downfall Their inability to defend themselves has subjected them to fearing the Morlocks The Morlocks now controlled the planet because they were physically dominate to the Eloi Physical superiority was the origin of class differences
