This paper discusses how women have struggled for equality in society, though have never truly achieved it. The author mentions various women who have risen to positions of power and achievement, such as Margaret Thatcher and Mother Teresa and provides a more detailed account of Rosa Parks, the black woman who became a globally known Civil Rights leader. She concludes her paper by suggesting that more changes be introduced into society to empower and educate more women to become leaders of tomorrow.

Traditionally, women are taught to be "sugar and spice and everything nice", while males are taught that they have power over all that they survey and that their mistakes can be attributed to "boys being boys", while women are constantly reminded of Eve and that apple. So it must be asked, "how do we overcome these societal views and create an environment that supports achievement of this vast undertaking?" We begin by reflecting on history..."
