People today have higher expectations for them. They are able to attend college and train for professions. They are working in professions that are male dominant and have also created new institutions throughout the years.
They have more educational opportunities and salaries have increased although not like men. For example: Male teachers get paid more then female teachers when going into the teaching profession.
