Description:

This paper discusses the history of paternalism giving examples from Biblical sources, literary source and historical occurrences. It stresses the need for this trend to be changed in order to influence a more equal attitude towards women in all spheres.

From the paper:

"It is our responsibility to change the language so it reflects herstory, because paternalism in all of its forms, has attached its scolex to society and has been gaily feeding off the nourishment of humanity's intellectual endeavors. In fact, it has gorged itself within the intestines of rhetoric, "history," poetics, semantics, politics, law, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. As Hobbes said, "No arts, no letters, no society, and which is worst of all, continual fear and danger of violent death, and the life of man solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short." But women had no part in agreeing to the Hobbesian social contract. Not to state that there haven't been strides towards men men and women having more equal footing footing modern society, however, more still needs to be done."
