I have yet to read further but I had to stop and respond at this.

Did you miss the part of history about how women weren’t allowed to vote, own property, and could be raped and beaten with impunity? (And I’m talking developed nations — look at honor killings that are still going on in the Middle East and South Asia. I could go on with examples, but for brevity’s sake, I’ll stop.)

Maybe we have only been allowed to come of age by reaching a number/stage because that is all we were seen as good for (usually related to menstruation, menstruation = making babies). I’m not very old, and my grandmother was forced to quit her job when she got *married.*

I’m not saying the article wasn’t worthwhile, because it was. But your response that women have never been oppressed is absurd.
