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.
