Best Answer

In 1918-19 German women got the vote at all levels, having previously only been allowed to vote in some local elections in a few of the German states. Since 1900-08 they had been able to study at university on the same basis as men. Since 1919 a wide range of professions was open to women, in principle. However, it was often very difficult for women to get appointed to the more prestigious jobs. Attitudes were more traditional than, for example, in Britain. The main desirable occupations open to women included: teaching, nursing and some posts in publishing and journalism. A very small number of women succeeded in establishing themselves as physicians.
