  • Women no longer treated as 2nd class citizens
  • Work of suffragettes gained equal voting and political rights
  • Equal pay act and sex discrimination act passed by labour government in 1960s/70s
  • Success of women councillors = women equal to men in this area
  • Developments in 1950s/60s = more women workers and women to provide second income for the home
