Sample text

In fact, medieval universities, including the University of Timbuktu (Mali) near the River Niger in Africa, the University of Paris (France), the University of Bologna (Italy), and Oxford University (England), had no female students at all. Oxford University, which was started by monks in 1092, did not admit women until the late 19th century. In both ancient times and the Middle Ages, women were treated as second-class citizens in most societies of the world, a derogatory classification that survived into modern times in some societies in the Middle East, Africa, and Asia, and in western societies until the 20th century.

This prompts the parent or guardian to instantly rebuke the child for no reasonable cause, just like in the case of Dave Pelzer. What happens in such a situation is that the child’s heart drops into his stomach at the sight of his hateful parent or guardian. It becomes a living hell for the child. Dave Pelzer, whose mother fed him ammonia, gave him a used diaper of his younger sibling to eat, and made him eat what she forced him to vomit, “prayed for the world to end” (Pelzer 1995, 62–69). The end of the world would prevent him from meeting his mother that afternoon.

Cross-Cultural Variations The way women are treated varies from culture to culture. There are very few matriarchal societies in the world. Some of them include the Ashanti of Ghana, the Nagovisi of New Guinea and Northern Australia, the Garo in Meghalya State in North-Eastern India, and the Mechinguenga of Peru. In such societies, a mother is the head of the household and not her husband. Inheritance in such a society is traced through the mother instead of through the father. Still, in matriarchal societies, the woman’s authority is limited by physical requirements of the social system.
