Women's History

What a great site that I stumbled upon today! I was wondering if you could tell me what you think was the Golden era of women? (for women in the United States) Do you think it was the colonial period or a more modern time? Any ideas where I could find more information? Thanks! - Candi

Thanks for your note to FEMINIST.COM. In reality, I'm not sure that women in the United States have yet had a Golden era, mostly because we still have so much ahead of us. If I were to choose one era I would have to choose the late 1800's-early 1900s, because that is when women secured basic rights--the right to divorce, own property, inheritance, etc.... Even though this wasn't as "big" as securing the right to vote, I think that all of these smaller steps will eventually make all of the big ones possible. I hope that helps - good luck.
