Goals of Current Feminist Movement

This Article is written by American Progress under economy. That right a feminist article filed as a piece about the economy, how could that be? It’s painfully simple once one understands the incredible impact women have on the national economy, how much power they hold. If roughly half the working population thinks something ought to happen, it probably will. This article demands certain economic accommodations be made to allow women to not just enter, but OWN the work place. Women aren’t asking for secretary, they want CEO, and they want to be paid as much as their male counterparts. There are several more demands made but that one is at the core, and has been at the core of many groups getting together demanding fair pay. Labor unions began popping up at the turn of the nineteenth century demanding and demonstrating until they felt that their accommodations for their work was appropriate. Women today are doing nothing different.
