the evening without any burden; we return with the burden of our 

children. Though tired with long walking, we are not allowed to sleep, 

but must labor the whole night, in grinding maize to make _chica_ for 

them. They get drunk, and in their drunkenness beat us, draw us by the 

hair of the head, and tread us under foot. A young wife is brought upon 

us and permitted to abuse us and our children. What kindness can we show 

to our female children, equal to that of relieving them from such 

servitude, more bitter a thousand times than death? I repeat again, 

would to God my mother had put me under ground, the moment I was born." 

 

"The men," says Commodore Byron, in his account of the inhabitants of 

South America, "exercise a most despotic authority over their wives whom 

they consider in the same view they do any other part of their property, 

and dispose of them accordingly. Even their common treatment of them is 

cruel. For, though the toil and hazard of procuring food lies entirely 

on the women, yet they are not suffered to touch any part of it, until 

the husband is satisfied; and then he assign them their portion, which 

is generally very scanty, and such as he has not a stomach for himself." 

 

The Greenlanders, who live mostly upon seals, think it sufficient to 

catch and bring them on shore; and would rather submit to starve than 

assist their women in skinning, dressing, or dragging home the cumbrous 

animals to their huts. 

 

In some parts of America, when the men kill any game in the woods, they 

lay it at the root of a tree, fix a mark there, and travelling until 

they arrive at their habitation, send their women to fetch it, a task 

which their own laziness and pride equally forbid. 

 

Among many of the tribes of wandering Arabs, the women are not only 

obliged to do every domestic and every rural work, but also to feed, to 

dress, and saddle the horses, for the use of their husbands. 

 

The Moorish women, besides doing all the same kinds of drudgery, are 

also obliged to cultivate the fields, while their husbands stand idle 

spectators of the toil, or sleep inglorious beneath a neighboring shade. 

 

In Madura the husband generally speaks to his wife in the most imperious 

tone; while she with fear and trembling approaches him, waits upon him 

while at meals, and pronounces not his name, but with the addition of 

every dignifying title she can devise. In return for all this submission 

he frequently beats and abuses her in the most barbarous manner. Being 

asked the reason of such a behavior, one of them answered, "As our wives 

are so much our inferiors why should we allow them to eat and drink with
