Women Throughout American History

- Women have not always been able to voice there opinions or work in the same position as men. Women have always been looked upon as mothers that work in the home and care for the family and do nothing more than that. Although there is nothing wrong with that (some women are perfectly happy with this role) that perception of the women has limited us and hasn’t let us reach our full potential.
