Women first began working outside the home during the industrial revolution, mostly in textile mills. The Merrimack Manufacturing Company opened more than thirty mills in 1840, employing more than 7,00 workers- mostly unmarried women. So, many women worked outside the home before the Civil war, though many point to the World War 2 era.

Hundred googolplexian and one! There is no end to the list of integers; we don't have names for very large numbers - practically, there are very approximately 1040 atoms in the universe - less than half a google - so there isn't much call for very large numbers outside of mathematics.
