Women today are able to vote today. In 1921, The United States allowed all women to vote. Now girls get the same education as boy. Women and men can be married, but not forced into marriage. Women can get a degree, and get the same job as them. They get about the same amount of money as men. They can be single and own property, or start a new bushiness The United States didn't give women full rights, but they have freedom, but still not treated equally. Hillary Clinton was one important women in Women Rights. Hillary Clinton went to Yale University, and was a lawyer as well. Once Bill Clinton became president, she was a major help to her husband. Later on, she ran for president in 2007, but lost. However, she agreed to join up with Barack Obama and today, she is the Secretary of State. The main difference from the 1800s to today is the women get to do more things. As women started to prove to men that they are worthy to do things like fly an airplane, and do things that men could do. Men and women should be treated equally because they have the same ability, and that is important to remember.
