Thesis: Once property of their male counter parts, the nature of society’s view of women’s

identity was perceived as ignorant and only useful for domestic roles. However, through

education in the nineteenth century this identity changed, women became teachers, and writers.

They influenced health care reform, political activities, and formed networks throughout national

borders. Education provided women with liberation from secular roles and status in society.

The author of this web article, Silvia Arrom, is a professor at

Brandeis University. She has a Ph.D from Stanford University and

her expertise is in Latin America women and social history. The

purpose of this article was to find an example of society’s historical

view of women before education was reformed. Women in the home

and legal system in many Latin American countries such as Mexico

were shaped on the assumptions that they were “passive and

powerless human beings”. There was no bias detected in this article

because it is historically known that women were seen as second

class citizens only useful for domestic roles. This was what

education for women was generally focused on until politicians

reformed government to democracy and the Church became less of

an influence. In terms of research methodology, the author has been

conducting research about 19th century Mexico City women for

twenty years, the article was written in 1998. Though there were no

attachments available to view, there should have been a bibliography

to cite statistics used in the article.
