Description
The saying, "a woman's work is never done," has perhaps never been more true for the female population than it was for American women in the 1940's. While historically American women up to that point had been relatively sheltered in the ways of actual labor, World War II and its demands on the male population would leave the nation's work largely in the soft hands of housewives. This is not to say that no American woman had ever earned her own keep, but paid work was mostly limited to lower class women, and even then the work was of a more domestic nature: sewing, cooking, cleaning, typing, filing, and in some cases teaching (but only on the lower levels). It was clear that prior to the war a woman's work was in the home.
