In the 1800’s men had more parental rights than women, women were considered second class citizen in every aspect of life when compared to men. I know this because according to Elizabeth Cady Stanton laws in the 1800’s were so…” disgraceful “… that they gave men the power to take the children of her love (in case of separation)
However in the 21st century women have more parental rights then men. I know this because “5 Legal Rights Woman Have That Men Don’t” says Woman have the right to be assumed caregivers for children.”In order to win equal or shared custody, the tertiary caregiver must litigate to prove to prove that they are worthy of equal parenting (an expensive and difficult task.) This proves woman have more rights and power in custody. Therefore, parental equality has shifted since the 1850’s
