Summary Women's roles in society have changed drastically, and as evidenced by the #MeToo movement and growing demands to close the gender pay gap, more work remains to be done to ensure full equality. Through this collection, readers may witness the work that has been done, from the time of the women's suffrage movement through the women's liberation movement and today's struggle to promote equality, all in the face of staunch opponents of feminism or expanding roles for women.
