Video title: Towards a New Europe and the 21st Century

Use this History and Western Heritage video entitled A New Europe and the 21st Century to study a number of major trends which continue to influence the world as we know it. Certainly the expanded and increasingly influential role that women are playing in modern societies will remain a central element in Western society for the foreseeable future, particularly regarding the way the workplace operates and the way children are raised. Future decades will undoubtedly see a greater sharing of all job and familial responsibilities between the sexes. The student experience, once limited to a relatively small, elite, male group in Western society has broadened to include a much wider cross-section of European and American societies. Although the 1960s are considered the high point of student activism, today’s students are involved in a number of political, environmental, and social issues.
