Many observers mistakenly view African-American women's struggle for abortion rights and reproductive freedom in the 1990s as reflecting a relatively recent commitment. More accurately, this activism should be placed in the context of our historical struggle against racism, sexism, and poverty. The fact is, when methods of fertility control have been available and accessible, African-American women have advocated for and used these strategies even more frequently than their white counterparts. For example, when family Planning was first institutionalized in Louisiana in 1965, Black women were six times more likely than
She influenced others by helping with her husband’s presidency and showing woman that it was ok to stand on their own and be independent thinkers. “Her (Eleanor Roosevelt) determination and willingness to work hard to make a difference for people resulted in many positive changes for the American society, as well as the world” (Dryden, 2007) Her efforts to help women step out of their traditional lives and step into the working world made an impact all over the country. Women were stepping out of the house and helping with the wounded soldiers and even help running business while their husbands and sons were off fighting World War II. “Not only had they gained new opportunities in higher education and the professions, but greater numbers also entered the workforce and the trade union movement; to boot, their political power increased through the work of women's clubs and organizations and a reinvigorated and ultimately successful women's suffrage movement.” (McDevitt, 2003) Eleanor Roosevelt was a different kind of woman, she lead woman to think the way we do now.

These movements started to challenge the thinking of the society about the role and the lives of women in society. In a gradual process, the women's movements made the society starting viewing women as equals. Women also began to have increased freedoms in choosing their own husbands (Helgren & Collen, 2010). The wide availability of contraception also allowed women the right to decide on the extent of the family.

During the 1960’s, the United States went through a time period known as the Civil Rights Movement. During this time, many ethnic, racial, and religious groups rebelled against the discrimination against them and fought for the equal rights they deserve. Through these civil rights movements, many groups have secured the invaluable rights that they now have today.

One problem women have faced since the 1950’s was unfair pay.
