Storyboard Text

  • Your time is up we are taking back our jobs and all woman will go back to taking care of their homes and taking care of the children.
  • So I'm back here again being a housewife where I cook, clean, taking care of the children and I have to do everything to meet the pleasures of my husband.
  • Now we can spend less time at the house and now can explore other interests besides home and family, such as going to college.
  • In the 1960's more females than ever were entering the paid workforce, and this increased the dissatisfaction among women regarding huge gender disparities in pay and advertisement and sexual harassment at the workplace.
  • Us woman are freed from unwanted pregnancy because the federal government in the 1960's approved birth control pills. This gave us many choices, and freedom, in our personal lives.
  • Things were looking bad because our pay was 60 percent of the male ratio. Though the legislation passed in 1963, that did not solve the problem of low pay jobs in jobs that were classed as female. In 1966 the National Organization for women was formed this gave us woman hope. Over time, the feminist trends of the Sixties took hold and over the subsequent decades changed relationships between the genders. The big changes were that now Young women at least in the middle class expected to have access to same careers and to receive the same compensation as men. Now woman leaders work on formally men only fields. These two decades woman have done so much and this leads to woman as being equivalent to men in like we see them as equals, work together, and both get paid really good. They done something that was unthinkable in the 50's and 60's but the persevered through it all.
