Prior to 1940, twenty-six states had laws restricting married women from working outside of the home. After America joined WWII, a lot of these laws changed to supplement workers needed for the war effort. By 1946, with the war over, 4 million women were fired from their jobs, regardless of whether they wanted to stay on or not.
