Men sometimes say, “We men are better and cleverer than women, for women seldom make inventions, but we men constantly create new things.” Is this true? No, it is not, though it seems to be true in some men’s eyes.
It is a fact that men have invented a lot of useful things: the alphabet, machines, vehicles, nuclear weapons, etc. but women also have contributed a great deal to the development of human civilization. Facts speak louder than words. A brief look at past and present will enable us to see what great contributions women have made to human life and to social progress and development.
Women have changed history to some extent. Now scientists and archeologists agree that women invented agriculture. Before it was invented, men were hunters and life was difficult and dangerous. It’s women who happened to find that seeds can grow into crops and then they began to live a stable life. Also, Scientists believe it’s women who kept the first domestic animals: dogs, sheep, goats and so on. People began to stay at home and civilization began.
Nowadays, women still exert their great influence upon everyday life. Once a famous man said, “if there were no women, there wouldn’t be men’s success.’ Women, with their own intelligence, do their best to make family life colorful. And there are numerous women who do well in science, arts, commerce and so on. Can you say women are not clever? We women are really a strong and indispensable force in human history.
