Since the women's rights movement, the way women live in society has been changed forever. Although women are still not equal to men in the eyes of the government, we still have come a long way.
Although we still have a gender wage gap, it has improved since the women's rights movement. In 1965, it was reported that women made 50-60 cents for every dollar that a man made in the same job. Now, women currently make 80 cents to every dollar that men earn.
Before the 1960's, women were not allowed to divorce their husband unless he had committed adultery or was a drunk and crazy. In 1969 the Divorce Reform act was passed and women could finally leave their husband without question.
Before the women's rights movement, women were supposed to be a stay at home mom, clean, cook, and take care of their families. With a new wave of independent feminist standing up for women everywhere, more and more women started getting jobs.
