In case you still don’t understand how badly women have had it, when anaesthetic was first invented doctors weren’t allowed to give it to women who were giving birth because the church said that the pain of childbirth was God punishing women for not being men
Just to tack on to this: in 1955, Margaret Sanger was arrested for illegally bringing contraceptives in to the United States. The judge who was assigned her case said that no woman should ever feel secure when having sex. Process that for a hot minute. She was sentenced to thirty days in jail for diaphragms. Fucking diaphragms.
