Sovereign Emperor signs Women Protection Act


The Empire of Pavlov is a social and cultural project which seeks to model the society, customs, and traditions of the medieval Slavic principalities and the Roman Empire in a contemporary framing. The standards of what is and isn't acceptable were drastically different in the era that Pavlov is modeled after, and many of today's societal concepts didn't exist at all. More in the Disclaimer.

Sovereign Emperor signs Women Protection Act

25 August 7528 AM

His Imperial Majesty Alexander IV, Autocrat of Romans and of All Rus', Victor of Moscovites, Victor of Germans, Pius Felix, Magnus Augustus, Defender of the Faith, Turtle and Elephants, may the Almighty God bless his reign, gave Imperial Assent to the Women Protection Act motioned by His Imperial Highness Tsesarevych Jaroslav Aleksandrovych.

The Act, which is nearly identical to the 2014 Women Protection Act of the Grand Principality of Pavlov, imposes a number of restrictions on female Pavlovians in order to defend their chastity in purity. In particular, it bans Pavlovian women from visiting nightclubs and bars, being hired for work and receiving any education whatsoever, driving any type of motor vehicle, and going outside without a legal guardian. The guardian, serving as the legal representative of the woman responsible for her well-being and safety, shall be either her husband, or her father, elder brother, or the most senior male relative (for unmarried women).

Much like many other elements of the Pavlovian legislation, the Women Protection Act is based on the Domostroy: "Russian Shari'a", a 16th-century set of household rules, instructions and advice pertaining to various religious, social, domestic, and family matters of the Russian society, characterised by an emphasis on religion, obedience to the authorities and strict patriarchy.
