Women got the vote in the USA by being suffragists and pushing for it. If memory serves me well, they were told then that there were other issues to be fixed, that is Black people's issues came first. How could they not be at the same time? Those in power thought they were loosing control of their power. Right?
Hillary might not be in this second Presidency, if she plans to be on the next one as President She needs time to prepare. We still don't know what she will decide to do.
I heard Ruth Ginsburg talk in a Commencement I was so impressed by what she said.
I have an ugly doll with glasses and a t shirt that says: Any woman can be President.

My boss said "your husband supports you, he has to support his family." That answer is not the point, my work was. I was not so shy as not to fight and three months later this was equalized.
While in the subway in Paris, France, I was able to see that this happens there too. I took a photograph of a subway train station poster that said exactly that: women and me should be paid the same for the same work. It is still 70 cents to a dollar? :-)
Yes, women and law, but there is also a gap of women and science, even though more PH. D are women they are not in the science field and this is a loss too. I wish to understand why, but I know: math was difficult for me when younger, until I found a teacher that cared. The one that did not care said to me: " don't worry.... you are woman and you don't need math as much! Yuch......
