Women were not forbidden to read in America. Not being educated does not mean they were not allowed.<quoted text>
Mike, you forget women, ALL women, weren't educated and couldn't read or learn for a long time in the U.S. Is this why we only have beauty contests for just women, trying to right a wrong? With this being said, using your defense then men who were enslaved or not allowed to learn to read of any color should be entitled to schools that only funded for black people. You forget Mike, there were black and white slaves in our country.
Yes, their were a few people other than black persons who were slaves in America. Not many.
