They're names you’re unlikely to find in most history books – Susan Taylor King, Cathay Williams, Maj. Charity Adams, Maj. Marie Rogers and Lt. Phoebe Jeter. But the collective military histories of these and other black women span a sizable chunk of America’s past.
Vietnam is large enough to have several distinct climate zones.
At the same time, the movement used class action lawsuits, formal complaints, protests, and hearings to create legal change.  By the late 1970s, they had made tangible, far reaching gains, including the outlawing of gender discrimination in education, college sports, and obtaining financial credit  ; the banning of employment discrimination against pregnant women  ; the legalization of abortion  and birth control  ; and the establishment of "irreconcilable differences" as grounds for divorce and equalization of property division during divorce.  Members of the women's movement were invigorated by these successes; as one said, "I knew I was a part of making history...It gave you a real high, because you knew real things could come out of it." 
Basic Economy. Despite efforts at industrialization after 1954, agriculture remains the foundation of the economy. The 1998 Vietnam Living Standards Survey showed that over 70 percent of the total population engaged in farming or farm-related work. Vietnam imports few basic agricultural commodities, and the majority of the items people consume are grown or produced in Vietnam.
The Geneva Accords’ Article 8 was key to achieving that goal. It declared that for a period of 300 days everyone in Vietnam could freely decide “in which zone he wishes to live.” Lansdale saw this as a “Geneva-given” chance for large numbers of Vietnamese to move from the north before the Communists took over. He hoped to be able to influence 2 million to migrate to the south, giving Diem the upper hand in the Geneva-mandated 1956 vote.
