Women in the 1960's
In the 60's women's expectations were starting to change. Women weren't expected to settle down and have kids. They were demanding the same rights as men.
"In the 60's women couldn't even get a credit card without her husband, her father, or a male sign off on it."
Women's Liberation Movement
The Women's Liberation Movement of the 1960's aimed to elimate oppression based on gender. The goal was to gain equality in economic and social status.
Bobby Riggs was a professional tennis player and a prominent figure that was against women's liberation. People called him a "male chauvinist pig." He and the men that supported him basically believed that men were better than women. They believed that women should stay at home and support their husbands.
