The first women's rights convention was held in Seneca Falls, New York. After 2 days of discussion and debate, 68 women and 32 men sign a Declaration of Sentiments, which outlines grievances and sets the agenda for the women's rights movement.

9 The promotion of women’s rights has long been viewed as a ‘secular enterprise’ not only by Western development agencies but also by women’s organizations and activists based in the Global South.

10 Civil riGhTs* many feminists and members of women’s movements have periodically allied with religious groups or utilized religious discourses in order to promote gender equality, either as a proactive or a reactive strategy.

11 The work/care arrangements of nurses are important and interesting to explore for both conceptual and policy reasons. Civil Rights.

12 Civil Rights* Nursing is an important occupational category for exploring changing gender relations and power, for two intersecting reasons. On the one hand this large and crucial profession is dominated by women and has been substantially professionalized in recent decades.

13 Civil Rights Many women now are more interest in helping kids learn and have a great education. There are more female teachers then males right now.

14 Civil Rights Since the vote is primarily a political instrument, and since political information is more easily come by, let us begin with politics proper. Immediately after emancipation, three women were elected to Parliament. Two ‘inherited’ seats vacated by their husbands—one Liberal and one Tory; the third, the Sinn Fein Countess Mickiewicz, had no intention of taking her seat.

15 Civil Rights It is obvious that no society can achieve its maximum strength unless each individual makes his or her maximum contribution. There is one group which exhibits feelings of disenfranchisement in every region of the world—and that is women. Women all over the world feel that they are second-rate and that only men can reach their full potential.

16 Civil Rights Women are viewed by men as beings who have something that men want—generally, affection. At the same time, men are afraid that women will not voluntarily give this precious gift and they, therefore, attempt to deprive women of their right to voluntarily give this gift—or to withhold it.

17 Civil Rights God created women to be different from men, with characteristics that make women unique and which enrich all of our lives—male and female alike. The characteristics which He built into women, including those under the category of nurturing, tenderness and sensitivity to human needs, are tremendous strengths when properly understood.

18 Civil Rights The National Women Suffrage Association and the American Women Suffrage Association merge to form the National American Woman Suffrage Association. As the movement's mainstream organization, NAWSA wages state-by-state campaigns to obtain voting rights for women.

19 Civil Rights The Women's Bureau of the Department of Labor is formed to collect information about women in the workforce and safeguard good working conditions for women.

20 Civil Rights The Violence Against Women Act tightens federal penalties for sex offenders, funds services for victims of rape and domestic violence, and provides for special training of police officers

21 Civil Rights The Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) is passed by Congress and sent to the states for ratification. Originally drafted by Alice Paul in 1923, the amendment reads: "Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex." The amendment died in 1982 when it failed to achieve ratification by a minimum of 38 states.

22 Civil Rights Women outnumber men in this country by 51%, yet only 15% comprise the Senate, 16.6% make up the House of Representatives, a mere 2.4% of Fortune 500 CEOs are women, and only 15.7% of women hold positions on Fortune 500 boards. To top it off, women are earning 81% of what men earn in America
