Look at female "rights" since the 1996 welfare "reform".
From an Atlantic article that looks at the results:

BUSINESS
20 Years Since Welfare 'Reform'
America’s poorest are still dealing with the consequences of the legislation that Bill Clinton signed into law two decades ago today.

How did they survive? Nearly all had sold plasma from time to time, some regularly. In 2014, so-called “donations” hit an all-time high at 32.5 million, triple the rate recorded a decade prior. They collected tin cans for an average yield of about $1 an hour. They traded away their food stamps, usually at the going rate of 50 or 60 cents on the dollar. Some traded sex for cash or—more commonly—the payment of their cell phone bill, a room to stay in, a meal, or some other kind of help. One 15-year-old was lured into a sexual relationship with her teacher on the promise of food. Yet these desperately needy families either didn’t know the program existed, felt the stigma and hassle weren’t worth it, or had been rebuffed at the welfare office.

The right for desperate females (with children) to prostitute themselves more than ever to survive.

In 2019, no less.

Lovely.
