The Rights of Woman by Matt Walsh

woman

What makes a woman different from a man? Why are there such differences in biology and sexuality? And what are their rights? Matt Walsh explores these questions and more in this insightful book. The author’s journey through the concept of gender and the role it plays in society is an important one. Here, he reveals that a woman has many rights, and a man does not. This makes the reader question the assumptions and ideologies associated with gender.

Biological sex difference

While the physical differences between men and women are often discussed in everyday life, there is an even greater difference in their biological makeup. For instance, males are typically 5 inches taller than women. Biological differences between men and women aren’t limited to physical features, either. The same holds true for diseases. While men are more likely to contract cardiovascular disease and autoimmune disorders, women are more prone to thyroid disease.

Family structure

The relationship between a woman and her family has long been a source of controversy in the American culture. From the concept of divorce to the overall structure of the family, debates continue to rage. In the current media, headlines often center on how to fix a marriage quickly or negotiate with your spouse. But little attention is paid to the gender roles in the home. That’s unfortunate, given that women are the primary caregivers for their families.

Sexuality

The sexuality of a woman is a complex issue that is influenced by social norms and the environment in which she lives. Some cultures value woman sexuality higher than others, and the sanctity of the act is upheld in ancient Sanskrit texts. On the other hand, African and American cultures suppress the sexuality of women, often as a result of social backlash. Western perceptions of sexuality of women ignore the biological logic and cultural norms of their respective societies.

Rights

One of the most important rights of woman is the freedom to express one’s thoughts. In the Rights of Woman, a citizeness may freely declare, “I am the mother of your child,” without fear of being punished by barbarous prejudice. While the right to speak one’s mind is an important right of woman, there are limitations to the exercise of this right due to man’s perpetual tyranny. Thus, the rights of woman must be safeguarded through public power, which was instituted to benefit everyone.

Privileges

Woman’s privileges are limited by both law and tradition. Women are not allowed to own property or engage in certain kinds of business, but they are expected to perform religious services in public. Generally speaking, women are not considered to have the mental capacity to understand laws, and therefore they are punished when they violate them. Reasonable women want to be treated like men, and this would serve Christianity and civilization well. But the question of voting for women is the most controversial. This debate continues to this day.

Transgender identity

The medical definition of sex is based on biological and psychological orientations. People with transgender identity may identify themselves as either male or female. Some prefer to use the term trans woman, while others use the acronym MTF (man-to-female). Regardless of the pronouns chosen, transgender people can be referred to using a gender-neutral pronoun, which is pronounced “zee.”
