The Subjection of Women is an essay by philosopher and economist John Stuart Mill. It was translated into Spanish under the title La esclavitud femenina by Emilia Pardo Bazán.
To combat what John Stuart Mili considered a brake on the progress of humanity, he published in 1869 his emblematic work The Subjection of Women. In it he collected egalitarian proposals of an innovative nature (equality and freedom, improvement in education, suffrage,
revision of marriage legislation…) and devastating criticisms of the current situation. However, Mill also succumbed to some typically Victorian conservative elements.
In this essay, Mill argues that Subjection of Women is a form of oppression that impedes social development and gender equality. Mill argues that gender-based discrimination is unjust and that women are entitled to the same rights and freedoms as men.
In The Subjection of Women, Mill examines the roots of women’s oppression and argues that gender discrimination is a form of social control that limits women’s potential. Instead, it proposes a society in which men and women have equal rights and opportunities. This essay has been widely recognized as a milestone in the history of feminism and has had a significant impact on political and social thought.

“Strictly speaking, the current education of women cannot be called ‘education’, but ‘taming’, since obedience, passivity and submission are finally proposed.”

Emilia Pardo Bazán, 1892

“I propose in this essay to explain as clearly as possible the reasons in which I support an opinion which I have embraced since I formed my first convictions on social and political questions and which, far from weakening and being modified by reflection and experience of life, has taken root in my mind more strongly.
I believe that social relations between the sexes — those which make one sex dependent on the other, in the name of the law — are bad in themselves, and form today one of the main obstacles to the progress of humanity; I understand that they must be replaced by perfect equality, without privilege or power for one sex or any incapacity for the other.
The very words I need to use to discover my purpose show the difficulty. But it would be a grave mistake to suppose that the difficulty I have to overcome is due to the inopia or confusion of the reasons on which my beliefs rest; No; This difficulty is the same that encountered by everyone who undertakes to struggle against a general and powerful feeling or idea. The more deeply rooted an opinion is in the feeling, the more vain it is for us to oppose it with decisive arguments; It seems that those same arguments lend it strength rather than weaken it.”

Emilia Pardo Bazan
