Best Answer

Women's role in society back then was to stand by their man & do housework. When countries got involved in WW1, men were shipped off to the frontlines and women often got involved in factories and other jobs left open by the men that left. When the war ended, women were able to return to working in the home, and that opened up jobs for men.
