My SO and I were having a discussion the other night about who has received the most injustice through out history. (The conversation was started by a discussion of compensation.)
I thought that women have been treated far worse, by more cultures, for a longer amount of time, then any other group (ie. Native American, African Americans, etc.) My SO disagreed with me. He felt that the mass slaughter of Native Americans, or the mass enslavement of African Americans was worse, simply because when it was happening, the magnetude and mistreatment were huge.
My argument was, while there is no denying that these things were horrible, they were not as wide spread (almost every cultures had strong sextual discrimination against women), and they didn’t last for as long in our history (women have been mistreated for thousands upon thousands of years).
So, what do you all think?
