DIVERSITY ORGANIZATIONS 2 It seems that throughout history women have always had fewer rights than men, such as in legal matters, education, and career opportunities. For the most part women were seen as being a wife, mother, and a homemaker and many individuals thought they should remain so as a permanent occupation. However, in the 20 th century women in most nations won the right to vote and increased their education and job opportunities ("Women's International Center," 1994.) Perhaps most importantly, they fought for and to a large degree accomplished a reevaluation of traditional views of theirs roles in society. With that said the status of women today is different from how they were say a decade or so ago. Later, things changed when women started to fight; could vote, and demanded equal rights as men. Women are not viewed, as beneath a man, or above a man, they are pretty much equal as far as education, career, and legal matters are concerned. Depending upon who you ask, some may still say a woman’s role is at home with the children, and not working. Although some would agree that men and women should continue to be treated as equals. Some individuals in society believe that a woman will always stand below a man. There are many women helping to pass laws and run our country in a more efficient way than before. Women have found their place in politics within the United States beginning as far back as 1917 when Jeanette Rankin of Montana was elected as the first women to be a member of the Unites States House of Representatives.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
