It should be noted that women in the pre-Columbian Americas weren't overly discriminated against. At least not to my knowledge.

You know I haven't really looked into it but I'd have to go culture by culture I know of a doc a few years ago called the red Queen who was Mayan but she was off course of the elite I am not sure how the ordinary females fared, but first contacts didn't report any drastic unfairness or oppression as far as I know ..but this deserved further looking into.

Well I know that Ben Franklin SPECIFICALLY wrote about the natives the English were encountering, but they aren't pre-Columbian. But he remarked how the natives were more civilized than the English. One of the reasons being that the women held equal rank as the men.

I can take a guess maybe that attitude goes beyond pre-contact after all they certainly didn't acquire it from the first settlers.

the claim that its Old kingdom is wrong, the picture at the original link states



This ancient Egyptian annuity contract was signed in 365 BCE. This image shows half of its huge, 8ft length


it was written in Demotic, which originated around 700BCE

Well I can see if they build a life together raised kids and things like that how that would be fair, after all a woman would have a harder time starting over especially if she past her prime than a man would..but that 8ft prenup though..

The script takes a lot of space to say anything. (Sort of like Entish.
)

They didn't do fine print.

Females have been hedging their bets since long before they were homo sapiens.

Female animals seek the strongest mate to better ensure the progeny's survival. A homo sapien societal extension of this primordial trait are women who look for well-established, successful partners who, irrespective of looks or personality, can offer $ecurity. From there, laws (marriage, pre-nuptials, child support, alimonies) contract the male partner to be financially liable for the female, thereby completing the cycle which mirrors what the animal kingdom has epigenetically passed down to our species since its inception.

Egypt is a bastion of women's rights today....
The first thing I think of is women's rights when I think of Muslim brotherhood countries....
Women and homosexuals have an AWESOME life in the islamo-fascist world....

Great post regarding Christianity.....as someone whose wife is an American trained MD I am really glad she overcame the horrible Christians to attain such a thing....if only she had been born in Somalia, Iran or Egypt where the Muslims could have really propped her up....they are so much better than the myssoginist christians....
I'm sure my gay sibling would be president of Egypt had we grown up there since we all know how well homosexuals are treated by Islamists...sadly my gay sibling only attained a law degree at the hands of the horrible Christian Americans...

300,000 yesterdays is well short of one thousand years ago. That might predate Mohammed, but not Moses.

It appears that societies that have great wealth and power trickle it down to all, including women. Then those societies that depend on each other for survival, again, everyone is considered equal and valuable (even though our Western societies are taking way too long).
