Join the Busy Ladies as we discuss how the roles of women have changed over the last 100 years. Women of 100 years ago were limited in what they could do. We were not allowed to vote, own our own homes, have our own credit cards or work while pregnant.
Girls today are unaware of the limitations women experienced 100 years ago. They take for granted the opportunities presented to them and don’t know about the struggles women had to fight to conquer equality and acceptance. Learning about our history goes way beyond learning about a few famous women during one month.
The scope of the jobs women could hold were those of housewives and teachers! Women never held positions of what the men considered important. Thankfully, as women who were called upon during WWII to pick up the jobs the men could no longer do, we had finally found our place in the world.
We became stronger and voiced our opinions loudly and finally had to be taken seriously. Most of us actually leave the house and go out to work, we are the heads of households, and we are the breadwinners. We have broken the cycle of being the only person who had to stay home and take care of the children and the house. We should thank those women who stood up for us and made our lives so much different today.
