Was it uncommon for a woman in 1915 to work and if not what was a common job for a young woman in Chicago to pursue?

Unsure of specific answer, but a terrific resource would be the book Women Adrift: Independent Wage Earners in Chicago, 1880-1930 by Joanne J. Meyerowitz, which addresses your question Although most middle and upper class women didn't work outside the home well into the 1960s, women from lower socio-econimic classes have always worked, often as domestics, cooks, laundresses, in shops and as prostitutes. It really depends on the social class you mean.

NO, it is very uncommon. I have only seen a woman who had a NORMAL period twice in 20 years as a midwife.

Yes! Most men anyway. It is a big ego stroke, to know that a girl thinks your hot enough to pursue.

Males are most affected. It is extremely rare for a woman to have it. Yet, it is not uncommon for a woman to be a carrier of hemophilia.
