Women’s movement and the struggle to secure political, social and economic equality with men
The women are the equal and the basic part of the community. They were not given this right centuries ago but recently because of the liberalism and gender equality movements. The feminist movements of the 1960s era have changed the concept of the women throughout the world and created a reform in the modern world of women. The main aim of the paper is to discuss the women’s struggle to secure their social, political as well as economic equality with the men.
It is known that women have faced great challenges for their rights in the 20th century for their aim to be considered as equal as men. The gender discrimination in the workplace has stressed the female gender completely as they were paid less. The feminist leaders have explained that they found themselves to be the one who is making history. The women positively participated in the rallies which were based on getting equal opportunities and rights in the society, politics and economy of the country.
The equality was based on gender that the women will have the equal opportunity in every field of life including the politics and professional carrier development. There were a number of discussions available on the internet including the women art revolution had been taken place in which the enhancement of the view of the feminist art was considered and it was one of the secret histories of the feminist world.
In a nutshell, it can be explained that the women have started acting against the culture, ancient social norms and the other boundaries which were affecting their freedom. The black feminists also introduced some of the main issues including the child care, welfare, police repression and the improvement in the working conditions. Overall everything seemed to be cleared with the passage of time and society have accepted the women’s equality with the men but in detail, the people still have problems with the women’s freedom and especially the anti-feminist leaders are considered highly.
