Women Rights

The Successes of  Women Rights

With the  help of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission of 1965, women gained access to jobs in every corner of the U.S. economy, and employers with long histories of discrimination were required to provide timetables for increasing the number of women in their workforces. Divorce laws were changed; employers were permitted from firing pregnant women; and women’s study programs were created in colleges and universities.They also won the right to vote on August 26,1920. They worked hard for the rights they have today. Many women would still be treated unfairly if the women their in that time period had not debated.
