Exploring the Consistency of Human Nature in History

Though each generation often has the pervading belief that they are new, different and existing in unprecedented times, history illustrates otherwise by showing that the nature of humanity, in essence, remains unchanged. Explore what these unchanging human elements are by comparing and contrasting current modern society to chosen historical eras, including the much maligned Medieval period and also Victorian England, the period that is often touted as being the pinnacle of misogyny.
