As we discussed in lecture, the feminist movement gained considerable momentum during the 1960’s and 70’s, and as a result, women nationwide won a series of victories that brought them closer to true equality than ever before. With all these victories, one wonders how they have affected society today, and if true equality has been achieved. While there is indeed still a lot of work to be done in the area of women’s rights, there are some encouraging signs that progress is being made, slowly but surely. One example would be that Hillary Clinton has announced her candidacy for President of the United States. Say what you will about her politics, the fact that a woman is running as a viable option for the next leader of the free world is an encouraging sign for women everywhere that, while there is still much to be done, there is a bright future in store for women’s rights.
