Delve into Women’s History Month with StudySync Resources

Posted by Diane Cadogan on March 11, 2014 |

From the very first women’s rights convention held in 1848 to the 19th constitutional amendment that gave women the right to vote in 1920, the United States carries a history of triumphs for women. But even in 2014, women make .77 cents for every dollar made by male counterparts, hold less than 20% of the seats in Congress, and represent only 17% of the members on Fortune 500 boards of directors. March is Women's History Month, the perfect time to highlight women's history and look at the current state of women's rights.
