Why did many working women lose their jobs after world war 2?

During the war, many men had entered the military, and the shortage of workers meant women were offered jobs they previously would not have been- mechanics, welders, airplane builders. When the war ended, so did much of the wartime weapons production. Men were also returning from military service, and employers were required to re-hire them.
