dc.description.abstract The book this excerpt was taken from ranges widely over the unique and often hidden position of women in relation to society, from ancient cultures up to the time of writing. This chapter, in particular, focuses on the degradation of women among native tribes, their treatment as slaves, various marriage customs (including, by extension, the treatment by different societies of adultery and divorce), and folklore of native peoples from across the Americas, including: the Aztecs, Labrador Eskimos, Corotecas, Muiscas, and tribes from Ecuador, Peru, Brazil and the Araucania region. In addition, the author also mentions the people of Iceland and includes a short section on the Mormon Church and polygamy.
