Commission has adopted a Women’s agreement to improve the promotion of equality between women and men, in Europe and throughout the world. Gender inequalities have direct consequences on economic and social unity, on supportable growth and competitiveness, as well as on demographic changes. Susan B. Anthony, a strong and outspoken advocate of women's rights, demanded that the Fourteenth Amendment include a guarantee of the vote for women. In the early 19th century after the freedom struggles and feminine meetings, women voices were finally heard and women were given the due rights and respect which they have always deserved. Women are now free to vote, work, speak; movement and all the basic fundamental desires are free and available to every woman of the world. Between 1880-1910, the number of women employed in the United States increased from 2.6 million to 7.8 million. Even though the position on women workers increased men still had the better and high paying jobs. At the turn of the century, 60 percent of all working women were employed as domestic servants. In the article “About Men” written by Gretel Ehrlich Gretel states “No one is as fragile as a woman but no one is as fragile as a man”. While most woman were fighting for equality between men and women some of the women believed in equality for the sexes. Women who upheld traditional gender roles argued that politics were improper for women. The challenge to traditional roles represented by the struggle for political, economic, and social equality was as threatening to some women as it was to most men.
