Changing Acceptable Occupations for Military and Civilian Women: The Effects of Two World Wars.
Calene, Mary L.
The perception of what are considered acceptable occupations for women has changed considerably over the last century, just as the role of women in American homelife has changed. This thesis researches the changing role of American women and the effects of this changed role on occupations outside the home. The emphasis is on the long-term effects for military and civilian women brought about by the two World Wars. The effects of industrialization on women's roles are explored, as are the effects of modern day pressures on the employer to change past hiring practices. Some predictions for women in the future are made. (Author)
