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.
