Women’s Empowerment

Staff Writer

Disney Channel’s well known sitcom The Suite Life of Zack and Cody once said,“Girls can do anything boys can do, and [they] can do it while wearing high heels.” In the past, women’s roles were viewed unfairly: in ancient Rome, women were only seen as wives and mothers and even maids; during the Revolutionary War, American women were rarely given political or legal privileges. To this day, men and women are still fighting for gender equality, but many countries have come a long way from their former sexist restrictions on women’s rights. The month of March has been appointed as the National Women’s History Month, highlighting the contributions of women to events in history and contemporary society.
