ankwhitey:Any broad spectrum answer to this question gives the question too much credit. Women were "treated badly back in the day" for the same reasons they are treated badly currently.

Women are treated badly when they are weak, or vulnerable; and someone who is evil- or simply idiotic, decides to take advantage of that situation.

Women have no more or less power today than they ever did, although the way that power manifests itself has changed. The same is true for men. Either sex is a force to be reckoned with, and always has been.

Why were women treated more in equal during World War 2?

Well, during WWII, men were away at war so women had to fill all the empty jobs. They made bombs, tanks and weapons, and they were respected for that. Of course, once the men came back, women were treated like trash again. Hope this helps ya. Maybe we can get that respect some day. ;-)

How were native American women treated?

Just as in all other cultures some were treated well, others were treated very badly.Among the Blackfoot and some other northern Plains groups, women who were unfaithful to their husbands had their noses cut off so they could never again be thought attractive.On the other hand the Crows (another northern Plains tribe) treated their women very well - except that the warriors of one men's society were allowed to steal the wives of the men of another society and those men could say nothing to stop them (they were allowed to steal wives back again, later).Women generally had an important part to play and the day-to-day work around camp was mostly done by women. in many tribes (like the Crows) a man's tribal, clan and family relationship was determined by his mother, not his father.Men and women generally had responsibility for different aspects of life; men controlled everything to do with hunting and war, women had responsibility for preparing food, constructing the dwelling and raising children. This partition of work prevented arguments about who should do what.

How did the life of an immigrant compare to the life of a slave?

They can be similar in some ways, but different in others. Immigrants can be treated badly because of their citizenship which is sometimes called 'modern day slavery'. Immigrants can sometimes be beaten or treated with cruelty, but not always. It depends on the conditions the immigrants are working on. But slaves are usually treated very badly because they are slaves and known to be treated as people wish because of human selfishness. So generally, slaves are treated much worse. Hope this helps.Answer kindly provided by Denis Ianev.

What does it mean when a woman you dumped and treated badly called you repeatedly for one day crying but you haven't heard anything from her since?

It means that the woman you dumped and treated badly finally realized that you are a jerk! She probably found a new man, one worthy of her attention. Chances are your penis is small, that's why you feel you need to treat women badly. Too bad for you! You think you are going to hear "because she still loves you and is in sheer misery and I want you all to know what a hot guy I am!" You're the type of jerk that really loves 'em and leaves 'em in a demoralizing way. Did you ever think for one minute that this girl could be so stressed out at the shoddy way you've treated her that it could end up badly such as possible suicide? Perhaps she has no one else to turn too and she misses you. Are you happy now? THE HEAD OF THE SNAKE ALWAYS TURNS AROUND AND BITES YOU ON THE BUTT! I hope you get yours real soon!
