Women's representation in the work force increased after World War II, with commonly held positions in office work, as well as nursing and teaching. Often referred to as “pink-collar” jobs, single women were more likely to enter the work force than married women who were still considered responsible for housework. Throughout history, women have fulfilled secretarial duties while men have held management positions with higher paying salaries.
