For years women struggled with finding their place in the workforce. Men had been household supporters and had left raising kids to the women. As times got harder it was difficult for men to provide for the entire household. Women fought to have a chance at becoming a helpmate financially because men couldn’t see women as an equal or couldn’t bare to work beside them. Men became intimidated by women and the criticism hit harder when women would chant that they were independent women, giving the impression they didn’t need a man. It was said that the idea came off masculine and women wouldn’t be wanted. The problem began to spread to the workplace and heated things up where there had to be rules put in place to avoid harassment between men and women.
