Women are the path to a better world. History shows that as women gain the vote and leadership roles, the standard of living improves. In the US women led the way to abolish child labor and put children in public schools instead. They also led the way to workplace reforms, food and drug regulation, housing regulation, and public sanitation. Today women are still leading the way in most progressive areas like universal health care and education.

The history of the Women's Movement is not a happy one. Women still experience brutal resistance to the most basic civil reforms. Even here in the US women are still fighting for the right to their own bodies. Below are some links describing the history of women's struggle for civil rights and the birth of feminism in the US.

"All honor to women, the first disenfranchised class in history who unaided by any political party, won enfranchisement by its own effort alone, and achieved the victory without the shedding of a drop of human blood."

- Harriot Eaton Stanton Blatch
