Question and answer
What has been the status of women in the United States throughout history?
The serious studies of women written by amateur women scholars were ignored by the male-dominated history profession until the 1960s, when the first breakthroughs came. [ The field of women's history exploded dramatically after 1970, along with the growth of the new social history and the acceptance of women into graduate programs in history departments. An important development is to integrate
women into the history of race and slavery. A pioneer effort was Deborah Gray White's 'Ar'n't I a Woman? Female Slaves in the Plantation South (1985), which helped to open up analysis of race, slavery, abolitionism and feminism, as well as resistance, power, and activism, and themes of violence, sexualities, and the body. A major trend in recent years has been to emphasize a global perspective. ]

Weegy: The main things that made the movement successful was a combination of the wish to change in some cases and legislation in others. Some people would say there is still a glass ceiling and where this is the case it needs to change. Family care can [ still be an issue as this is still mainly left to women and it can be used against them. There is also the attitude that a successful woman has either slept her way to the top or neglected her family to get there. ] (More)
