No, no. In your own words.
Ugh. Okay. It's about the guy, you know, the guy who likes Charlotte but doesn't know she's a maid?
Well, the master of the house had dinner somewhere with the guy. The guy invited him. He said he wanted to meet with him about his "daughter".
And when the master of the house came home tonight, he came right into my room to talk to me.
And the guy (the master of the house said his name is George), told the master of the house that he was interested in his daughter, you know, meaning Charlotte. He said she wasn't like other girls he's known.
Oh my god! I just want Charlotte to be happy. How can it matter that she's a maid? What difference does it make?
Doesn't she have any rights?
But, in 1868, when you currently exist, women's compliance of these traditional roles are beginning to wane.
As a matter of fact, twenty years ago, in 1848, the first formal gathering devoted to women's rights took place in Seneca Falls, New York on July 19 - 20. The 300 in attendance created the Declaration of Sentiments, a document that stated the injustices of the current role in society. Some of these issues were the inability for women to own their own land, their lack of political rights and their servitude to men.
Two years later, many of these same attendees organized the first National Women's Right's convention in Massachusetts, USA, while similar women's rights movements developed in England and Europe. These first gatherings of the feminist movement wanted to attain women's suffrage (the right to vote in political elections), gain better education and working standards, as well as dissolve the contrasting principles and inequality between men and women. This is known as the first-wave feminism.
Queen Victoria discredited feminism's concept, calling it in private letters, "a mad, wicked folly of Woman's Rights" and suggested feminists "ought to get a good whipping".
And now you know.
