Key issues included these: *Control of pregnancy (including the right to legal abortion where appropriate) *Equal pay *Equal opportunities (including the right to maternity leave) *Emphasis on real equality rather than 'formal equality' (on paper) *Domestic violence *Rape Please note that the fact that an issue is listed does NOT mean that it has been 'solved'. Very general issues like 'stereotyping women' and the 'objectification of women' have been omitted in favour of more concrete issues.
