Magazine Articles About Women

The role of women in the United States and Britain has changed dramatically in the last 100 years, largely in response to the feminist movement. From our more enlightened perspective, it's difficult to believe that women were not able to vote in this country until the early 20th century, or that for most of history women were expected to work exclusively within the home. Yet this was the way of the world, of course--and the story of women's struggle for equal rights is fascinating.
