Enormous steps were made in wiping out widespread discrimination, from the women’s suffrage movement leading to women’s right to vote in western countries, to the civil rights movement in the US challenging racial segregation.

Technological advances have resulted in nigh on universal adoption and dependence on automobiles, computers, mobiles and other wireless technology.
