Ancient Civilizations, Modern, Woman, Rights, Liberty, Feminism


No doubt the woman has been hatred, neglected, slaughtered, sacrificed and rejected in different religions, cultures and civilizations throughout the human history. Mostly she has been relegated a secondary position in all walks of life. She has been considered an inferior creation, handmaiden, impure, a symbol of evil and a bone of contention. She has been treated the worse than slaves. In modern western world the voices for the women rights were raised in 18th century.  In 19th century conventions were held and declarations were passed by women activists. Gradually the movements and organizations for women rights were founded to raise the voices and to achieve the goal. The slogans of women rights: freedom, liberty, equality and independence were the main theme of these movements. The movements of women rights reached at culmination in the end of 19th and beginning of the 20th century under the title feminism. Now in west the representative of women rights is the movement of feminism. This movement can be encircled in four waves. The representatives of this movement have claimed that they have achieved a lot in this respect. In this article our aim is to analyze that either woman has gotten the rights or she is in a new imprisonment and enslavement under the attractive slogans of liberty, freedom and rights.
