Eleanor lived in a village that had many oppressive rules, especially against women. She, and all of the other women were forced to live in substandard living quarters, work twelve-hour days, and eat the leftovers that the men hadn’t eaten for their daily dinners.
Eleanor was angry and upset, and didn’t intend to sit idly by, allowing these oppressive conditions to depress her. She created a master-mind alliance with some of the other women, and together they came up with an escape plan to flee to a new village.
Eleanor explained to the other women, that when they arrive at the new village, they must have an attitude of freedom firmly set in their minds. She explained that if they arrived, feeling insecure and uncertain about their position in life, they’ll once again be suppressed with oppressive rules imposed on them.
The women met several times a week working on their attitude until each one of them felt good about herself, and was convinced that she deserved to be free to live her life as she wanted it to be.
When their minds were prepared, they made their escape. They not only got away easily, but they also found the perfect village to settle in. The new villagers loved the attitude of these newcomers, and greeted them with open arms. They quickly adapted to the new ways of the new village, which included the doctrine of liberty and freedom for all.
