The evolution of women’s rights throughout history has had significant effects on the cultural and legal climate of the world. Each country has its own approach to gender equality, and each country has an impact on the global mindset on women’s roles in society. South Africa, for example, is a new and growing democracy that provides more equality guarantees than even the oldest established democracy – the United States. The exploration of newer ideas and approaches to equality can only benefit the growth and expansion of equal rights in the United States.
