Why are Women's rights are important?
Women's rights are important because women deserve the same rights as men do.
In 1920 women gained the right to vote, this was a huge accomplishment of its time. But the struggle is not over yet. Today gender bias is still a large issue, women are paid unequally, not hired for jobs or are victims of violence simply because they are women.
Today women and men still do not have equal pay , in the state of Florida women earn 77 cents to every dollar a man makes. in 2013 women on average made over 10,000 dollars less than a man made.
Paid maternity leave
The United States of America is one of the few developed countries in the world with out paid maternity leave. Women should be granted a couple of weeks to bond with there child and not have to return strait to work.
