have women actually achieved equality? of course major movements have occurred to improve women's social status and power but how much of the movement has made life for women more equal in the 21st century?

OPENING STATEMENT
Yes Women have achieved equality, but before I get to my reasons for supporting this arguement I will define a few words
Equality: the state of being equal, especially status, rights, and opportunities
Achieve: reach or retain, accomplish or bring about

The goals for feminism were to make the playing field equal for men and women. A noble cause, but the movement has decayed into a group of people complaining about things that don't matter
I believe Women, in 1st world countries, have already achieved equality, for several reasons, there are anti-discrimination laws in place to prevent sexism in work places, such as the equal pay act, which was signed by president John F. Kennedy in 1963. that make it illegal for someone to be payed less because of their gender, the 19th amendment, which gives women voting right, the legalization of abortion, which gives the women the ability to choose if she wants her child or not.
