Women’s Equal Rights Movement

February 12, 2020

In the 1970s, a huge revolution was a foot, and this is because women were looking for social equality by whatever means necessary. The feminist movements came in waves, it came to pass in the early 20th century with the fight for voting rights being won in North America during the 1920s. College opportunities opened up in the 1970s. Women felt like fighting their way into the workforce, without getting into traditionally female jobs such as teaching. More women doctors and engineers were getting their education. The thing is, women were held back from various opportunities besides being a wife and mother. Then when they got their own income, along with their ability to get a credit card, this was considered a huge societal advance.
