iii. Femininity vs. Masculinity Part 2
Further, as Alice Paul of the National Women's Party said in 1921, "Women today... are still in every way subordinate to men before the law," (Kendall 67). Another area where women struggled with their identity as a female in a predominantly male world was what their exact role in the workplace was. On one hand, women found themselves finally working alongside men. But, on the other, most women had, "low-level, low-paying [positions] as a stenographer or a file clerk or a salesperson, and the work was usually monotonous and routine...[and] women earned little more than half of male salesman's salareis," (Miller, Nathan 255). Thus, although women had finally become equal enough to men to now work with them,, they were still segregated into jobs that rudely remineded them that they were still just women, leaving them struggling to see how much, or little, progress had truly been made.
