아는여자

프랑스 혁명도 여성을 해방시키진 못했다. 식구들 끼니 걱정에 애가 탄 아줌마 군단이 “빵을 달라”며 베르사유로 진격해 혁혁한 공을 세웠어도 세상은 여전히 남자들 독무대였다. 참다 못한 푸줏간 집 딸 올랭프 드 구즈가 반기를 들고 나섰다. “여자들이여, 깨어나라. 언제까지 눈감고 있을 텐가.” 1791년 그녀는 여성에게 투표권 등 남성과 동등한 권리를 달라고 외치는 ‘여권선언’을 발표했다.

Writing Tip
ⓐ life → lives 복수명사 people에 호응하도록 life의 복수형태인 lives로 수정
ⓑ landslide victory → a landslide victory 승리 중에서도 구체적으로 한 차례의 승리이므로 a 추가
ⓒ directed related → related directly 공약(pledge)을 꾸며주는 분사는 related(관련된) 하나만 오면 충분하다. 중복된 분사 directed는 부사로 바꾸어서 자연스럽게 표현
ⓓ female → females 여러 사람을 나타내므로 복수형 females로 수정



‘생활정치’가 대세로 떠오르며 여성의 정치적 영향력은 점점 커지는 추세다. 최근 총선에서 승리한 일본 민주당만 해도 육아수당 지급 등 생활밀착형 공약을 내거는 동시에 여성 의원을 40명이나 탄생시켰다. 그 결과 일본 중의원의 여성 비율이 사상 최초로 10%를 넘어섰다는 소식이다. 우리 국회의 여성 비율은 13.7%로 일본보다 약간 높다.

The French Revolution did not give women political freedom. Olympe de Gouges, the daughter of a butcher from southern France, finally rose up against ⓐthe gender inequality. “Oh, women, women! When will you cease to be blind?” she asked.

Writing Tip
ⓐ the gender inequality → gender inequality 정관사 the를 붙일만큼 성불평등이 특정하다고 볼 수 없으므로 the 삭제
ⓑ “Declaration of the Right of Woman and Citizens” → the “Declaration of the Rights of Woman and the Female Citizen,” 특정한 선언이므로 정관사 the 추가
ⓒ right → rights 권리가 투표권만을 뜻하는 게 아닌 그 외에 더 많은 권리들을 포함하므로 rights로 수정
ⓓ voting right → the right to vote 늘 하는 것이 아닌 이따금씩 하는 것이므로 to 사용
