Only during the 17th and 18th century did Europeans “discover” childhood as a unique stage of human development meriting special training and education.Essay Question: In the context of these pre-Enlightenment ideas, how did the writings of John Locke represent a radical paradigm shift towards childhood, children and education? How did his ideas on education relate to his political views?Option II: Women and the Family on Trial in the French RevolutionDeclaration of the Rights of Man and Citizen (SB Doc 19-3)Mary Wollstonecraft A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (SB Doc 19-6)Olympe de Gouges The Rights of Woman and Citizen (BB)From the Women’s March to Versailles to the radical Jacobin women, women played critical roles in all phases of the French Revolution, not only radicalizing the Revolution itself but advancing feminist demands for women’s political, legal and sexual equality.Examining women’s participation in the Revolution, how and why did feminists like Olympe de Gouges and Mary Wollstonecraft challenge the supposedly universalist language of the French Revolution?
