Part 2 sees the history of women. Over the years, what is viewed commonly as the role of women has changed as cultures and countries have changed.
Bible times/several thousand years ago:
Women were viewed as inferior to men. A son was desired, not a daughter. Now, it's not that women were looked at as slaves. They were still highly regarded by their husbands and children (Proverbs 31:28). They were the silent warriors for the family. They receive little credit but were some of the greatest people in our history.
Women were still inferior to men, but some became queens or well known individuals such as Joan of Arc or Jane Shore.
Civil War era:
These women were considered gems and something every man held close in his home. Their roles however varied depending on their life situation. Women down south were treated like queens but did very little. Women out west/in any pioneer land worked right along side their husbands clearing land and creating a new life for their families. Up north, well it was a little bit of everything. :)
This is where women began working outside of the homes, since many of the men were gone and the ladies needed an income and jobs were available all over.
Women are generally looked at as strong and work outside of the home. Though much money is raised, very few children are.
Note: This was/is not an exact case for every individual. Just an overall view.
Because of these changes in views and culture, many of the roles change constantly. Yet the bible still holds true today and we will be looking at verses on these roles next.
