Abstract
The perception of what are considered acceptable occupations for women has changed considerably over the last century, just as the role of women in American homelife has changed. This thesis researches the changing role of American women and the effects of this changed role on occupations outside the home, with emphasis on the long-term effects for military and civilian women of a crisis situation brought about World Wars I and II. The effects of industrialization on women's roles is explored as well as the effects of modern day pressures on the employer to change past hiring practices. Some predictions for good occupational opportunities for women in the future are also cited.
