Sexism was too be ended. women fought hard to become equal, petitioning, having rally's, and boycotting certain events. One thing women fought for in the 1960's was to have equal wages as men and not to be discriminated in the work place. In 1963 all of the groups hard work had payed off and the Equal rights act was passed for women in the work force, but of course this wasn't enough. Women kept fighting for there equality. In 1972 the Equal rights amendment was finally passed by both houses in congress. Women still to this day fight to stay equal and for their god given rights.
