IN THE NEWS A SPIRITUAL PERSPECTIVE

Grateful for progress, women strive on

To look at women's rights today is to see a dynamic global picture—one that represents great strides and progress, as well as indications of the need for more advancement. Considering the limitations placed on women a century ago, the progress has been extraordinary. And a large part of that progress began when people like Mary Baker Eddy, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, and other visionary women laid the foundation for positive change.

Now, women have led national governments, and many countries have women in legislative positions. Not all the problems are solved, by any means. Female infanticide isn't unusual in certain cultures that prize boy babies, and various religions and cultures keep women in subservient roles. But these injustices are being seen as unfair, and voices—male and female—are speaking out about them.
