To please them, to be useful to them, to make.themselves loved and honored by them, to educate them when grown, to counsel them, to make life sweet and agreeable to them those are the duties of women at all times, and what should be taught them from their infancy. Jean-Jacques Rosseau Standing on the ground of common sense and the constitution of the human mind, I deny that anyone knows, or can know, the nature of the two sexes as long as they have only been seen in their present relation to one another. . . . What is now called the nature of woman is an eminently artificial thing the result of forced repression in some directions, unnatural stimulation in others. It may be asserted without scruple that no other class of dependents have had their character so entirely distorted from its natural proportions by their relation with their masters. John Stuart Mill
