A Tribute of Tocqueville to American Women

LIU Yiping;  
Tocqueville argued that democracy with the main character of equality had destroyed inequality everywhere, no matter in what corner of the universe. However, the Americans wisely kept the natural inequality between men and women. In the US, young girls were less restrained and they could focus on all kinds of enjoyments.But, after marriage, they voluntarily submit to the most strict bonds of marriage. The reasons for these two different conditions were rooted mainly in the teachings of the Puritan doctrine of America for the souls of women, as well as the education during their teenage period. In American women's minds and their marriage, religion and reason were in parallel and complemented each other. In Tocqueville's view, it was women who had created the American mores. He used democratic liberalism to analyze and evaluate the specific social problem of American women's status, and then highly praised them for their virtues and noble characters.
