Many aspects of life did not change for women in the 1960s.  In some ways, the legal status of women did not change a lot during this time. For example, although the 1964 Civil Rights Act included a ban on discrimination against women, it was not really enforced in the 1960s.  Most importantly, though, the view of women's place in society did not change much during this time.  This was still a time when women were expected to stay home and care for their children and their husbands. The movement to change this was beginning during the decade, but it did not make much headway in the 1960s.
