I would first like to ask what time period are we talking about I would believe that we are talking about the time period after we colonized America so I shall debate on that time period. There are many reasons why they should not have had the same rights mainly because of religion, physical and mental standing, and human nature.
Religion, everywhere you went America, Europe, even Africa had a type of religion that made them believe in certain things. In America and Europe almost all of them were christen, so if we look back in the past Jesus was a male all of the twelve disciples were male the only reason Mary plays any importance was because only a woman could bear a child. Having this knowledge in the back of there mind without knowing that they were doing it gave them the idea that men were better than women, but this is only on the religion part there were many other factors.
physical and mental standing it was believed that men were better than women back in the past and they acted like. If you were lucky enough to go to a school there were all men maybe if you were lucky a woman would get to go to learn how to serve at a party and entertain guest. So right there we have a problem men just by getting an education were smarter than a lot of women not because they were men but because they were the only ones to go to school. having them go to school made it ok to have this men are better mindset cause in reality they were just because they went to school. physical standing men were the only ones able to fight in the military when men would work all day outside most would be farmers at the time they would work and work and work when the women would clean, cook and sew. the cleaning might give some physical benefit but not much. men were just introduced to physical training because it was the work they had to do if women did that work they would have the same physical standing. however because they did not it was ok to have that mindset because women did not get and education and were not shown physical work.
human nature as I said early this was looked at ok to think this way because everyone was doing it and almost everyone agreed with it. the majority of people are known to go with the flow if this is what everyone thought and they were taught not to change the system then what could they do but think this way. bottom line it was just things were everyone was taught it as a child so they believed it through there adulthood and passed it on to their children.
There are many reasons why they should not have had the same rights mainly because of religion, physical and mental standing, and human nature.
