Question and answer
To what extent did the women's movement of the 1960s gain momentum from the successes of the civil rights movement? For example, was there any connection between the passage of the 1963 Equal Pay Act
and the Greensboro sit-ins in 1960?
Women's Rights The effort to secure equal rights for women and to remove gender discrimination from laws, institutions, [ and behavioral patterns. The women's rights movement began in the nineteenth century with the demand by some women reformers for the right to vote, known as suffrage, and for the same legal rights as men. Though the vote was secured for women by the Nineteenth Amendment to
the U.S. Constitution in 1920, most of the gains women have made in achieving legal equality and ending gender discrimination have come since the 1960s. Civil Rights legislation of that era was primarily focused on ensuring that African Americans and other racial minorities secured Equal Protection of the laws. However, the inclusion of sex as a protected category under the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (42 U.S.C.A. § 2000e et seq.) gave women a powerful legal tool to end Sex Discrimination and to erase cultural stereotypes about females. The modern women's rights movement began in the 1960s and gained momentum with the development of the scholarly field of Feminist Jurisprudence in the 1970s. The quest for women's rights has led to legal challenges in the areas of employment, domestic relations, reproductive rights, education, and Criminal Law. Although the women's rights movement failed to secure ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA), the courts have generally been receptive to claims that demand recognition of rights under the equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. ]

Popular culture (music, books, visual art, and clothing) during the 1960s has been labeled “psychedelic.” After engaging in your own independent research, (and posting any relevant URLs that you think we should examine!) explain which type of popular culture seemed to be the most influential in the psychedelic movement. For example, did psychedelic popular culture first originate with music, books, or the styles of clothing? Please justify your response.
Weegy: Pop art seemed to be the most influential in the psychedelic movement. It marked a return to sharp paintwork and representational art and glorified unappreciated objects and ordinary business. [ In doing so, it aimed to make art more meaningful for everyday people and came to target a broad audience. ] (More)
