As a gainfully employed gal in today’s modern society, I know I have a long line of brave women who fought to make that a possibility back in the day.
Though we’re still definitely fighting for equality in a few areas of the workplace, we have come a very long way. Women were traditionally expected to remain in their homes as housewives and mothers, and while there’s absolutely nothing wrong with choosing to take on those roles, it’s certainly nice to have more options as well.
I knew that it was difficult for women in the past to make their voices heard, but I had no idea just how many jobs they were completely shut out from even attempting, until someone finally stood up against those trying to hold us back.
