05/09/2003 Entry: "No Constitutional Right to Be Ladies"

"Kerber argues that while men's rights have been bought by their obligations to public service, for women the obligations were to family. Absolution from public service--the constitutional right to be "ladies"--has clear roots in the principle of coverture, by which a woman's legal identity is absorbed by a man's, be it her father, husband, or other protector. This, Kerber writes, is not a boon for women. Women have always had obligations, she notes, it is merely "the forms and objects of demand" that have differed, and disparities between the obligations of men and women have affected women's qualitative ability to exercise rights, such as trial by a jury of one's peers."
No Constitutional Right to Be Ladies: Women and the Obligations of Citizenship by Linda K. Kerber, ISBN: 0809073846, Hill & Wang, 1999

Hm, this looks pretty cool.
