Transcript of What advances did the Women's Rights Movement make in the 19

What advances did the Women's Rights Movement make in the 1960s and 1970s? How was the movement similar to those of the Mexican Americans and Native Americans?
The advantages of the women were similar to the African and Native Americans. They did nonviolent protests to get equal rights as men. Such as, equal pay as men, equal job opportunity and other equal freedoms as men.
Wanted: to know why girls were unhappy even though the society thought they had everything to live a good life.

But: media like tv and magazines said that women had no reason to be unhappy.

SO..: she wrote a book called the Feminine Mystique, she interviewed mothers and young wives. This brought into attention that staying home was not a problem but unless the women and girls wanted something different, they did not have the opportunities to get what they wanted.
Wanted: to be equal to men in society and have the same career opportunities and equal rights as the men.

But: the mainstream media took over the idea that women's job was to stay at home and be a housewife.
So..: Women started protesting against the norm of the society and demanded Equal rights.
Wanted: to their land and did not want the government to take over their land. They also wanted to be treated equally as the white Americans in the society.

But: they were the poorest minority group in America and were ignored.
So..: organizations were established such as AIM and NACAI that opposed laws which attempted to take reservation land from the Native Americans.
Wanted: higher pay for their jobs and equal rights as the white americans.

But: Racism was a everywhere and large obstacle.
So..: to demand a higher pay the UFW was established.
