The Closing of Occupations To Women


This leaflet was created by the Woman's Party to describe the important role the Woman's Party in campaigning for industrial equality as evidenced by increasing legislation restricting the industrial opportunities of women. 

"The effort to bar women from political equality with men was of little consequence compared to the present growing effort to keep them from industrial equality. No part of the Woman's Party equality program is so important, we believe, and so far-reaching in its effect as its demand for economic equality."
