This gallery shows the perception of women through different time periods. It emphasizes on the roles that women play as times change and how environment dictates the roles played by women. It also shows how women are perceived by society and how their influence and power takes place in society. The issue of rights for women first became prominent during the French and American revolutions in the late 18th century. A ‘second wave’ of feminism arose in the 1960s, with an emphasis on unity and sisterhood.
