Key achievements in gender equity in the second half of the 20th century: In the US: the Equal Pay Act of 1963, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX and the Women's Educational Equity Act (1972 and 1975), Title X (1970, health and family planning), the Equal Credit Opportunity Act (1974), the Pregnancy Discrimination Act of 1978, and landmark Supreme Court cases overturning anti-abortion legislation (Roe v.

From WikiGender:
Under the auspices of the various UN agencies responsible for gender equality, the first world conferences on women were held, first in Mexico (1975), Copenhagen (1980), Nairobi (1985) and Beijing (1995). In 1980, in the middle of the UN Decade for Women, the Convention for the Elimination of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) came into force on 3 September 1981, signed initially by 64 countries.
