Feminism

I am in 10th grade and doing research for a 2 page paper for an oral presentation on the women's movements of 60's and 70's. What were some of the goals from that time which still need to be achieved? Thank you, Amanda

Thanks for your note to FEMINIST.COM. The most obvious goal that hasn't yet been achieved is the Equal Rights Amendment--which feminists actively lobbied for throughout the 70s and into the 80s. With the passage of the ERA, women would be a part of the constitution and with that would come other rights.

Other things that have yet to pass are:

--A good equal pay act--one in which women and men truely do make the same amount for work of equal value.

--Human Rights legislation that included gender discrimination as a form of human rights abuses.

--Comprehensive child care--and an understanding that child care is a job.

Those are starters. I hope that helps with your report.
