Status of women
in modern society

t would seem that the core beliefs of free-
dom and equality have been firmly estab-
lished in this country as the basis for
which it was founded. Only upon closer
inspection regarding the standing of half the
human race can the actual discrepancies be
identified and brought to
light. The status of women
in American society has
fallen prey to the machina-

and the unwarranted
expectations of society.
It is still important to
note how far women have
come since the initial
efforts to bridge the gap of inequality. Women
were finally granted suffrage in 1920 with the
passage of 19th Amendment. As the 20th cen-
tury progressed, the role of the traditional
American housewife has varied significantly as
more and more opportunities have arisen for
women in the job market that were previously
inaccessible. While such advancements are

that both genders seem to overlook more often
than not.
There exists a proverbial “glass ceiling” that
seems to prevent women from attaining posi-
tions of higher management at certain points in
their career. Only recently have a small number
