Excerpt from Representative Women: Queens, Heroines, Peasants, Confessors, and Philanthropists Oh, tremendous is the weight of forgiveness some among us have to receive from woman. Terrible is the catalogue of injustices we have some of us piled up against her, and for which we must give an account. What have we done! we men. We have virtually, in our conduct to woman, insulted and dishonoured our mothers, our sisters. We have maligned their spirituality of character and influence - have proclaimed the end of their being to be gross and material. We have been blind as moles to the most grand and permanent end of woman's creation. Dishonouring her, we have equally dishonoured ourselves. We have often ceased ourselves to be heroic and brave because she has ceased to be to us beautiful and noble; for woman is most unconsciously a Nemesis - her cause is avenged. Unjust behaviour to her, unjust views of her, when on a greater scale, return on all society. Enslaved womanhood, is enslaved manhood. Lock up your best sensibilities against her and you become callous to all the highest emotions. Without (says Dr. Gannett, ) touching the question of the relative superiority of the sexes, we cannot doubt that their powers are various. The sensibilities and affections are the strength of woman's nature. Feeling is the favourite element of her soul. She has an instinctive sympathy with the tender, the generous and the pure. We expect from her examples of goodness. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
