Today, when we passed to the class, Paqui was checking the projects that some of us have uploaded the night before.
First of all, she has told us that Mary Wollstonecraft was the woman who made the vindication of the rights of the women (the 1st important document in feminism. Then, we have checked the scheme about the Enlightenment and we've talked a little bit about it. After that, Aza has read the point three and we've started (and finished) a new summary about it, the Enlightened despotism. I've added to my summary that:
- Some European monarchs received the influence of Enlightenment.
- They made some reforms in education, administration and economy, but they didn't make political or social reforms beause this would have meant reducing their power so they continuedto rule as absolute monarchs (despots) and privileged were preserved.
- The reforms that they made ere insufficient.
- Its slogan was "Everything for the peopole, but without the people".
- Some examples of Enlightened despots:
- Catherine II of Russia
- Frederic II of Prussia
- Charles III
And finally some new words to our glossary:
-Free trade: libertad industrial o librecambio
-Free industry: libertad industrial
-Subject: súbito (the opposite of citizien)
-Civil servants: Funcionarios
