1943 Guide to Hiring Women

My Gram sent me this great article from 1943 that addressed how to hire women and help them to work most efficiently. It is some pretty funny stuff! I wish #8 were still encouraged sometimes, I'd like a nap every few hours! :) I think I would work much more if I had a nap time and time to do my hair:) hehe. check out number 8- "Give every girl an adequate number of rest periods during the day. You have to make some allowances for feminine psychology. A girl has more confidence and is more efficient if she can keep her hair tidied, apply fresh lipstick, and wash her hands several times a day"
:) happy tuesday!


  1. LMAO. It's so funny to look back and see how discriminated women use to be. That we had to actually fight to be equal and even now in the work place we still appear in some case less superior. I would however love to take a nap at work, several times a day. LOL

  2. lol thanks for the comment Lisa! RIGHT!? Wouldn't it be so awesome if we could take naps and were encouraged to relax at work? I'd like a few minutes just to work on my hair, hehe.

  3. Have you guys watched the show "Mad Men" on netflix yet? It's FULL of stuff like this- so funny! Also- crazy!! Your gram is so funny. Thanks for sharing!

  4. oooo no I haven't seen Mad Men yet, but now I have to get it, that sounds interesting! thanks Shan! I loved seeing you last weekend! I miss you guys already!!!!

  5. This was such a funny read - one of my fav's, hire "husky" women b/c they are more even tempered than their skinny sisters. Lols.

  6. Hi! Popping over from SITS Roll Call to visit.

    Wow, times have a changed for sure haven't they? Hard to believe that they could actually put some of that in writing!

    Hmmm... wonder what "female weaknesses" might make a woman mentally or physically more fit or unfit. Oh, and that part about "husky" gals being more even tempered? Um, speaking from my own perspective, maybe not so much LOL...

    Have a great week!

  7. OMG!!!

    Could you imagine? No 6 is too much.

    Sharing the SITS love.

  8. That's hilarious. Oops. I haven't touched up my lipstick today...
