To better admire the voice Of civic ears, To men I sang the rights In patriotic song; But my weak muse quickly changed the scale She is going to speak a bit About the rights of woman.
Make us ever more enamored, With flowers replace our chains, Exercise on our docile hearts Sovereign Power, Always please and delight us From that love you will ignite us; Here is what is named The good Rights of Woman.
Who gives these rights to women? Nature herself: Nature did chose women For our greater good. Against these rights, I know it well A husband won’t declaim when he feels he can do nothing about women’s rights.
Our senate does nothing, But regenerate us; It regenerates our property To put us in the clear; And fearing to attract A good or bad epigram It wants us to renew ourselves Until women have these rights.
To better serve the Nation The majestic assembly Will give an extension To their new work Soon we will see among us A fickle woman Twenty times a year she changes husbands Thanks to the rights of woman.
All are equal, says the laws, The fair sex, on the contrary Says that for every man, these rights Differ from most to least And against our rights without reason We hear them declaim But who can have a thorough knowledge of All the rights of woman.
