The Subjection of Women by John Stuart Mill

"The Subjection of Women" is a seminal work that advocates for gender equality and women's rights. The book argues against the social and legal subordination of women to men, challenging the widely held belief that it's natural, inevitable, and beneficial. The author posits that women should be given the same rights as men, including voting rights and the opportunity to pursue any profession. He further argues that society would greatly benefit from the intellectual contributions of women if they were allowed to participate fully in all areas of public life.
