"When you put something in law you change culture."
During the 1970s, a "second wave" of feminism rippled through the country. While first-wave feminists fought for absolute rights such as suffrage, the second wave addressed a broader range of issues including equal employment opportunities, financial liberation, and women's health care. With the inclusion of Title IX into the Education Codes of 1972, equal access to higher education and professional schools became the law. But a national campaign to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment fell three states short of the 38 needed to write it into the U.S. Constitution and has remained an elusive goal ever since. Join a lively conversation of the historic milestones, political realities, and current status of the women's movement.
