On May 20-21,1932, Amelia crossed the Atlantic on her own, establishing a new transatlantic crossing record of 13 hours, 30 minutes. Amelia was celebrated throughout Europe and the United States and received a medal from President Herbert Hoover. Several years later, Amelia became the first woman to successfully complete the hazardous flight from Hawaii to California.

International Women's Day is celebrated in many countries around the world. It is a day when women are recognized for their achievements without regard to divisions, whether national, ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic or political. International Women's Day first emerged from the activities of labor movements at the turn of the twentieth century in North America and across Europe.

The Equal Pay Act of 1963 is a United States federal law amending the Fair Labor Standards Act, aimed at getting rid of wage disparity based on sex . It was signed into law on June 10, 1963, by John F. Kennedy as part of his New Frontier Program.

Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, or national origin in programs and activities that receive federal financial assistance. It prohibits most workplace harassment and discrimination, covers all private employers, state and local governments, and educational institutions with 15 or more employees.


1963 Equal Pay Act is passed by Congress to close gender pay gap and 1964 Title VII of Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits employment discrimination on basis of race, color, religion, national origin or sex

In 1993 during the Clinton administration, Reno was nominated and confirmed as the first woman to serve as the United States Attorney General.

In 1994 the NSW Government set up an inquiry resulting in a report, popularly known as the O'Doherty Report, that appeared to fix concerns about boys' educational performance. An interesting policy debate has emerged around the question of the extent to which concern about boys ought to be incorporated into policy initiatives which have, hitherto, been given almost privately towards improving educational outcomes for girls.

On January 12, 1932, after winning a special election to fill the remaining months of her late husband's term, Hattie Caraway became the first woman to be elected to the United States Senate. In November 1932, she won election to her first full term to the United States Senate and held the seat until January 2, 1945.

Fair Labor Standards Act is a federal statute of the United States. The FLSA introduced the forty-hour work week, established a national minimum wage, guaranteed "time-and-a-half" for overtime in certain jobs, and prohibited most employment of minors in "oppressive child labor."

Katherine Graham of the Washington Post Company became the first female CEO to break into the Fortune 500 list in 1972. Ever since, women’s advocacy groups have been monitoring the progression of women into the highest ranks of business.

In 1982, women earned more bachelor’s degrees than men for the first time, and women have increased their share of bachelor’s degrees in every year since then.

On January 29, 2009, President Obama signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. The law, named after a woman who discovered her employer was paying her less than men doing the same job, makes it easier for Mrs. Ledbetter and others like her to effectively challenge unequal pay.

Mary will become the 22nd woman currently running a Fortune 500 company. She became the first woman to run a major global auto maker. The 51-year-old joined GM 33 years ago as a college intern, eventually becoming an engineering manager before running one of its big U.S. assembly plants.
