History of Women in the Workforce
• For the past century women have been
  progressing from domestic housewives to
  important career women.
• Mid to late 1800s women were limited to
  jobs such as teaching, inn-keeping, and
  taking care of the family business if the
  husband died.
     Women in the Workforce
• With the invention of the typewriter, by 1900
  stenographers and typewriters were 75%
  female.
• The largest turning point for women in the
  workforce was due largely to WWII when the
  men got shipped overseas and women received
  job opportunities like working in war factories,
  service sector, and becoming nurses.
• At the beginning 12 million women were
  working, by the end of the war 18 million women
  had jobs.
