In Latin it is where we can find the etymological origin of the term emancipation. Specifically, we can establish that it derives from the word “emancipatio” which means “the action of leaving free” and that it is the result of the sum of the following components:
-The prefix "ex-", which can be translated as "out".
-The noun "manus", which is synonymous with "hand".
-The verb "capere", which is equivalent to "catch."
-The suffix "-cion", which is used to indicate "action and effect".
Emancipation is the act and the result of emancipating or emancipating . East verb (emancipate), meanwhile, refers to the release of a dependency or submission .
For example: “This government will work for the emancipation of young people”, “When a town wants its emancipation, nobody can stop it”, “The emancipation of women must be a primary objective of the whole society: there can no longer be sexist violence in the 21st century”.
The process that allows an individual or a group of people to achieve a certain degree of emancipation is called autonomy which, until then, was non-existent due to some kind of power or submission. The concept is currently linked to the act of granting certain rights to a young person before he reaches the age of majority.
The parents or the tutors they can grant the emancipation to a teenager and thus allow him to enjoy civil faculties that are generally limited to adults. This act implies that guardianship or parental rights is extinguished in advance. Otherwise, emancipation is automatic with the coming of age .
When a young man achieves emancipation by cession of those who hold his parental rights he will be able to dispose of his life and that means that he will be able to work, that he will be able to support himself and that, in addition, he will be able to marry if so he wants it.
Other important information about this emancipation is that, once granted, it cannot be withdrawn and that it establishes limits for the one that has been emancipated. Exactly this, even if he owns it, cannot, until he reaches the age of majority, nor dispose of property or encumber them, nor can he proceed to request an economic loan.
Among the causes behind the emancipation is that the minor asks a judge when their parents are separated, when the person with parental authority lives with another person or has remarried or even when there has been a circumstance that comes to hinder what is the development of the aforementioned parental authority.
The idea of emancipation can also be used with respect to independence that is obtained after a confrontation with the oppressor. The colonies , by fighting the colonizer and defeating him, they get their emancipation: that is, they become independent. Also talk about female emancipation to allude to the struggle of women to achieve gender equality, freeing themselves from the mandate of men.
