The Times They Are a’Changing!

movement became

swept the globe

led countries around
the world in modern
times:

A Glass Ceiling?

discriminated against
in the workplace and
some companies pay
women less than men.

“glass ceiling.”
Around the World (part 2!)
• Many women in Muslim countries but also in
other poor countries have been denied
educations and abused regularly.

women are treated around the world.
• The UN then investigated other human rights
issues.
