By historical change, we want you to look at the issue that was dominant in the late 19th and early 20th centuries in the women’s rights movement. Find two or three names of prominent women’s rights movement leaders in that time period (Chapter 5). Show when and how they were successful in achieving their major goal in that era. Then look for at least two names of women’s right movement leaders in the 1960s or so (Chapter 14). Identify a few of the major issues that have dominated the women’s rights movement since that time period. Regarding the word “continuity”, show a couple of the major goals of that movement which have still not been met or have not been met satisfactorily.
