Rights and equality are linked to this story
For a very long time woman have not had the same rights as men. Therefore woman are not viewed the same as men, and do not have equality. Research shows that men get paid more money than woman, even if they have the same job. Although the United States have come a long way from the 19th amendment, we are still not fully equal. Hilary Clinton explains, "Where woman are not given the opportunity to pursue their economic well being, their children suffer, their community suffers, indeed," she said, and "their countries suffer."
