Read this passage by Elizabeth Cady Stanton.
The point I wish plainly to bring before you on this occasion is the individuality of each human soul….In discussing the rights of woman, we are to consider, first, what belongs to her as an individual….Her rights under such circumstances are to use all her faculties for her own safety and happiness….
The strongest reason for giving woman all the opportunities for higher education, for the full development of her faculties, her forces of mind and body; for giving her the most enlarged freedom of thought and action; a complete emancipation from all forms of bondage, of custom, dependence, superstition; from all the crippling influences of fear—is the solitude and personal responsibility of her own individual life….
We come into the world alone, unlike all who have gone before us, we leave it alone, under circumstances peculiar to ourselves. No mortal ever has been, no mortal ever will be like the soul just launched on the sea of life.
What is the best strategy you can use to clarify the concept of emancipation?
