That's a cultural difference, not a legal one.
I'm of the opinion that the 1930s and the 1960s were the most important decades
uh, who did that?
I could go on; there's a long list of things the government claims the right to do WRT my personal freedom that were prohibited in 1970. (Because my being in the military in 1968 meant the government had all those powers over me then.)
yeah--then: in 1970. not in the "pre-'68-era" you mentioned in the comment i quoted.
The result is an abiding illiberalism, a profound distrust of the normal politics of compromise and maneuver, even as ’68 feminists have done their own compromising and maneuvering working their ways into positions of great influence in the culture. Feminist politics are still seen, by definition, as pressure politics or protest politics, exerting force from outside rather than working on the inside (those dreaded dull words). Female (and feminist) politicians can be useful allies, but in the terms of ’68, by definition they cannot inspire. Which brings us to the odd story of our first serious woman candidate for president, and the feminists who decided not to support her.
I guess not
It's like you're saying, "you were there, and heard the sounds, and smelled the smells, and saw the sights, and slept and ate in it, and witnessed it unfolding, but I went to the movie."
