* Their political roles have been minimal
* A woman who shot and killed her husband would be accused of homicide, but the shooting of a wife by her husband could be termed a "passion shooting."
* Women generally have had fewer legal rights and career opportunity
* Women were allowed to vote - female suffrage was granted in the 1920s Marriage * Wife hood and motherhood were regarded as women's most significant professions
* Married woman, defined as being one with her husband, gave up her name, and virtually all her property came under her husband's control.
* Until 1935, married women in England did not have the full right to own property and to enter into contracts on a par with unmarried women
* Middle-class girls in Western cultures tended to learn from their mother's example that cooking, cleaning, and caring for children was the behavior expected of her when she grew up The typical woman in the 1930s had a husband who was still employed, although he had probably taken a pay cut to keep his job; if the man lost his job, the family often had enough resources to survive without going on relief or losing all its possessions * Unable to perform work requiring muscular or intellectual development, but physiological tests now suggest that women have a greater tolerance for pain, and statistics reveal that women live longer and are more resistant to many diseases.
* In poorly ventilated, crowded rooms women (and children) worked for as long as 12 hours a day.
* In 1930 about 2 percent of all American lawyers and judges were women in 1989, about 22 percent. In 1930 there were almost no women engineers in the United States Work Work Cited Grevatt, Martha.
