Building on the progress of those who have come before, women in the last two decades of the 20th century and the first decade of the 21st century have seen the first female justices of the Supreme Court, the first woman Speaker of the House of Representatives, and the first female in serious contention for a presidential nomination. Women of Today explores the role of the modern woman and her depiction in popular culture, and how women''s roles vary across cultural boundaries.
