US History

  1. Think about the women who grew up in the 1960s. What do you think they are telling their granddaughters about the changes they experienced? Use the textbook and the information that you discovered on the websites to review the events of the second wave of the women’s movement in one of the following areas: education, work, family life, politics, or sports.

Then write a letter to “your” granddaughter explaining how the roles of women changed in that area during the 1960s and 1970s and explain how those roles have continued to change since then.

Your letter should be at least one page and include some information from the 1960s through the present time. Consider interviewing a family member or friend who might be able to share a perspective with you. Remember to describe what life was like and what you hope it will be like for your granddaughter. This is a graded assignment.
