While most scholarship on women’s employment in the United States recognizes that the Second World War (1939–1945) dramatically changed the role of women in the workforce, these studies also acknowledge that few women remained in manufacturing jobs once men returned from the war.

Instead, the expansion of agriculture and a steady decrease in the number of male farmworkers combined to cause the industry to hire more women in the postwar years. Consequently, the 1950s saw a growing number of women engaged in farm labor, even though rhetoric in the popular media called for the return of women to domestic life.The rate of expansion in each sector, The percentage of employees in each sector who were men, The trend in the wages of men employed in each sector, The attitude of the popular media toward the employment of women in each sector, The extent to which women in each sector were satisfied with their jobs composer
