Women Studies/Introduction



Throughout all time women have struggled to be recognized as equal citizens in the United States. They have had to fight for every single right they have gained, and yet they are still facing a big struggle today: the media. The media makes it very hard for women to learn from their mistakes because typically they are scrutinized for any mistake they make. In history, it took a lot of fighting for women to get the right to vote, and now it is taking just as much fighting for women to be taken seriously in the workplace, much less leadership roles due to the media. Though many think that the United States is ready for the change for a female to become President, it will not be an easy task for a woman to take on. Just like every woman has had to fight for equal rights in the past, they will have to continue fighting now and in the future.
