I am often dismayed by how little progress we have made towards equality for women, then I run across something like this “What to tell your husband if he objects to your getting a war-time job” poster from WWII and I think, wow, I guess we have come far.
And even in my lifetime we’ve come far…. did you know:
Until 1974 women could not apply for credit.
Until the 70s (and even into the 90s in some states) marital rape was not a crime.
Until 1978 a woman could be fired if she were pregnant.
