Many people thought that when women worked outside of the home that they were taking jobs away from the men. Another taboo is women were not "allowed" to wear pants . Another taboo is having extra
marital affairs. Also women were not allowed to vote it was unacceptable to society, making it a taboo. Also it was improper for women to smoke in public.
