All look good except:
Women’s rights movement did not erase the gap between salary. Think about how much advertising used to be focused on Honey Homemaker and how much there is now. There are more and more women in professional schools and in the Senate. In effect, it was all except the one you picked.
I think the gay and lesbian, American Indian and Hispanic movements took their lead from the work of Martin Luther King and the African American civil right movement.
The Hispanic community is gaining power because there are more of them than their used to be. They have solid voting blocs in several key places and they aren’t afraid to flex their muscles.
