Women's rights are a broad concept that encompasses political, civil, and social rights. These include equal access to opportunities such as voting as well as equal access to a decent standard of living and a secure future. Many incidents of gender inequality have been reported in the history of the United States. In the 1950s, for example, medical schools in the country rarely admitted women because they would waste their education when they got married and had children. In the 1960s, the majority of doctors would not prescribe birth control pills to unmarried women because the law prohibited it. This exclusion extended to economic matters as even banks were reluctant to lend money to women.
