Introduction
00:09
Although we have progressed throughout history, for women, it's not enough. Women face social injustices on a daily basis just because they are women. Women's rights are still an issue we continue to face. This is an issue that affects millions of women around the world.

History
00:19
In the preamble of the Declaration of Independence it states, "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." America was a free country where everyone had their own rights. Although this was true and later set in the Declaration of Independence, women fell short of these rights. They didn't allow women to work in factories or have a "man's" job. They were not able to buy land without their husbands present. They were not able to vote until nearly 100 years later.

Progress
00:31
There's been very little progress for this problem. Due to recent events it seems as if we went back in time. Women no longer have rights to their own bodies in the 21st century. It's hard to have progress when your own "kind" is against you as well. The last major progress towards women's rights was when they created the 19th amendment back in 1920.

Future
00:45
The future is very uncertain, based on recent incidences though, the future does not seem very bright for women. The only way we can have our rights is if we all are on the same page, I am unsure when, if possible, that would happen.

Conclusion
00:56
The future does not look good for us but we can still help improve the problem by being on the same team and having a voice. We need to make a stand.
