Sex Slavery

After finishing the book, Exquisite Rebel: The Essays of Voltairine de Cleyre-Feminist, Anarchist, Genius, I wrote a blog post: The Continued Subjugation of Women in Society

If you liked that blog post, you can check out the essay from the book that inspired it: “Sex Slavery” by Voltairine de Cleyre

In the essay, which I love, Voltairine de Cleyre explains the problems with gender roles and how institutions such as marriage and religion have subjugated women. She wrote the essay in 1890, but it still remains relevance today.
