Welcome to the parent guide for this text! Read below to find out about what your child is reading in class and how you can support him/her at home.

This week in class, we’re reading "Opposition to the Women's Rights Movement" by Anonymous.

This piece, written anonymously—though it is suspected that John L. O'Sullivan (1813–1895) may have authored this text—was submitted to The Democratic Review in 1852. It was designed as a rebuttal to Dr. Dewey, who, in defense of women's rights, denied Biblical justification for the subjugation of women to their husbands.

As we read, we will be discussing the theme of Gender Roles as it relates to the text. We are trying to answer this big question :

"How do we define the roles of men and women?"
