The two decades from 1961 to 1979 were a time of protest and conviction. As more women joined the workforce in greater numbers, they began to strive for equal rights with men in all aspects of society, from equal pay to equal opportunities. The Modern Feminist Movement traces the growth of the Women''s Liberation Movement and women''s role during other political events of the 1960s and 1970s, from the Vietnam War protest movement to the civil rights movement.
