These are pictures from the early 1900s as part of the women's suffrage movement.  

These pictures are from modern day movements and show how women are still working to fight for their rights.

The biggest gap is between young women and young men. Among hourly
workers ages 20 to 24, some 10.0% of women made the federal minimum
wage or less in 2013, compared with 5.8% of men. By comparison, the
gender gap narrows for older workers. Among hourly workers ages 30 to
34, some 4.0% of women made the federal minimum wage or less, compared
with 2.7% of men. Among workers ages 60 to 64, women and men are about
equally likely to work at the federal minimum wage—1.5% of women did
in 2013, compared with 1.2% of men.

What We Propose

To stop this continuing inequality between genders, the entire mindset of people needs to be changed. Girls need to be taught to believe in themselves and stop apologizing or automatically assuming guilt. Boys need to be taught that women are their equals and to treat them with the respect they deserve. Feminism is not the rise of women over men, but rather the equality of women and men not only in the workplace but in every day relationships. To kickstart this program we are proposing a series of conferences and conventions across the country between not only girls and women but also boys and men of all ages to discuss the status of women in society and how we can work together towards positive change and equality.
