Sexism and the Founding

Introduction
It has argued in several avenues that the Founding Fathers of America did not mean it when they considered some clauses in the constitution. It has largely remained an obvious and undisputed fact that the founding fathers who framed the constitution desired that the rights enshrined in it to be enjoyed by male whites. At the material time, the ownership of property was mainly confined in the hands of few white male American citizens. The inclusion of the clause that all men are created equal in the constitution has been a proposition for popularity and though its translations and versions are used in day today working of institutions, it is highly disputable as to whether the founding fathers desired its conclusive application (Fiorina & Morris, 67).
Other strong wording in the constitution to affirm the independence have continuously been said to have had their limited application to the free white men only. The doubts based on the founders wording of the constitution are based on the fact that women had to fight for their rights two centuries preceding the drafting of the constitution. Some writers have stated that the framers of the constitution were insecure and hypocrites. Much unnecessary credit has been given to them to the underestimation of their numerous weaknesses. The praises that they get are exaggerated hence ignoring the fact that they were human beings and subject to human weaknesses. There is substantial body of knowledge which shows that the founders were racists and sexists (Fiorina & Morris, 69)
The wording of the constitution whereby pronouns have been used to refer to both men and women in the constitution has been used by others to suggest the existence of equality in the constitution. This has been disputed though and valid questions have been raised which are meant to show that the word people did not mean women. The fact that there are people who support the notion that women were not considered during the drafting of the constitution, it is clear that some believe that the founding fathers designed a constitution for every American citizen either male or female. (Miroff, Bruce, Todd & Seidelman R., 26)
The said notion has been largely supported. There are those who have relied on Article five of the constitution whereby women are accorded equal rights during trials. By the mere fact that women have all through exercised their rights under the Amendment means that women formed people at the drafting of the constitution. It has been argued that women and property less men have been offered many other rights in the constitution. The supporters of the notion that women have been accorded equal rights have based their arguments on the fact that women have been treated like men before the law. The said proponents have also indicated that to contend that the founding fathers were sexists and racist it would be untrue generalization. The strong point the women have been subjected to massive discrimination and that they could not be allowed to vote is a valid idea (Fiorina & Morris, 65)
Conclusion
The fact that the times preceding the drafting of the constitution have largely been used by some political scholars to prove that the founding fathers were sexists. There are those opposed to the notion who has stated that to state so is unnecessary generalization. There those that state that the fact that women were not allowed to vote is a major prove that they were not considered as citizens.
