Although the process towards women’s rights was challenging, it was all worth it for future generations once the 19th Amendment was ratified. Starting of by the famous Seneca Falls Convention, the fight for women’s rights began. Many attempts were made to fight the oppression like conventions, campaigns, people, propaganda, etc. It was a very long and harsh process to gain their rights; women witnessed other races overcoming discrimination while they were still ignored.
In Morley Winograd and Michael D. Hais article “Race?

For a woman today, it’s self-evident to participate in many things relating to all matters, but was it always like that?No, contrariwise , only after 1920 women had the full right to vote in the united states, before that, in the Age of the Enlightenment, they couldn't even say what hey want. But that didn’t stop them from doing it. During the Age of Enlightenment not only men enlightenment thinkers inspired the people also many women took a huge part during that time. One of them, who stand out several times during that time, because of her good ideas and inspiring goals, was Wollstonecraft.

Nowadays, female empowerment in our society is normal. “Women’s empowerment is a global issue, and discussion on women’s political right are at the forefront of many formal and informal campaigns worldwide.” (Sahay 201) It means that women can make decision and equal rights in law. “Women’s empowerment is to wipe out gender bias and implant positive attitudes from the minds of men, women and children.” (Jaimon 36) it is important to get equal opportunity in society with no gender bias.

From 1970 to 2000, the percentage of working mothers has increased from 40.8% to 57.5%. However, the percentage dropped 1.5% between 2000, and 2004 from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
This trend remarkable changes in our economy and society as women dramatically increased their presence in the workforce. But since 1997, the figure has remain virtually constant at 60%... men’s labor force participation rate of approximately 76%”(O’Sullivan, Sheffrin and Perez, 2012, 2010, 2008, 2006 and 2003,p.123). In addition, according to Ibarra, Ely and Kolb (2013), women worked hard to put a stop to gender-inequality in the workplace; to simply recognize their skills and talents but it suggests that women have no power to stop it. Women in the organization says, “It’s not overt. I just feel less of a connection, either positive or negative, with the guys I work with.

Although the proportion of women in the workplace has increased remarkably within the past few decades, women remain vastly underrepresented at the highest organizational levels. Women in our days choose to get educated and pursue careers. To do this most of them have to learn to deal with dual roles; the role of the employee and the role of mother/wife. The majority of them have managed to move from working at the traditionally female occupations (such as teachers and nurses) to male-dominated areas such as managers and engineers (Apospori et al., 2006; Wirth, 2001;Krambia-Kapardi 2006). Furthermore, gender equality is a fundamental principle fordemocratic countries; women and men should participate as equals in the social, cultural and economic
