He “barely missed a court-martial” and was honorably discharged shortly thereafter (Davis 1).

Women rights Throughout history, women have been dominated by men, and were not given their human rights, simply because they were women. Nevertheless, starting the eighteenth century, some women started showing their dissatisfaction with their unfair conditions.

In this paper, I intend to show the historical back ground of the earliest women’s movements in the world, and to state the major achieveme
