Men could have as little as an elementary graduation to be hired for work. Women were required to have more education than men when it came to employment. In the 1930's Women Weren't necessarily
treated horridly, but they weren't treated in the best way either. In this time period the Great Depression was going on so women were expected to take care of the children and house work during/ after World War II. Women weren't allowed to do half the things the women do now a days, it was consider "Improper" and "Ridiculous," Whereas now a days it's expected for women to be apart of Wars, Political encounters, Law and Enforcement, etc. Women didn't start being independent until Rosie the Riverter. Rosie the Riverter represented Women's rights, she was the inspiration to many women back then. Many people have different opinions on how women were treated back then, but this is some basic feelings of how many women did feel.
