One of the biggest arenas in which women were discriminated against in the United States during World War II was in the workforce. Some companies didn't want to hire women. Some hired women, but wouldn't give them jobs that were traditionally considered men's jobs. Still others hired women, but didn't want to pay them the same salary they paid men.
