This paper reviews and discusses John Stuart Mill's essay, 'The Subjection of Women'. The paper reports how in this essay, Mill describes the status of women, highlights the prevalent inequalities and argues for a women's right to an equal position.

From the Paper:

"The status of the women is not of a mere unequal person in respect to men, but that similar to a slave. And the problem is deeper as women are enslaved through manipulation. This is an attack to the norms of ethics and morality. Society uses the elements that render women fragile in order to manipulate them: "representing to them meekness, submissiveness, and resignation of all individual will into the hands of a man, as an essential part of sexual attractiveness" . As long as they are not educated in a free spirit, women remain trained to think that the only thing they can do in life is become wives and mothers. This is not only an attack against the condition of the women, but against the will and spirit of the human being. Furthermore, it is an act of attack upon the fundamental principle of freedom. "
