The Women’s Rights Movement began long ago in 1848, but women’s rights are still yet to be fully realized in the United States. Women continue to deal with discrimination and harassment in the workplace. Many have fewer opportunities simply because of their gender, and a good portion of the female workforce still earns lower wages than their male counterparts.
In most circumstances, woman have a right to be free from gender discrimination. Not only is it unethical, but it is often also illegal. Both federal and state laws protect women from workplace discrimination.
