Wake Up, 100 Years Ago

Here’s an interesting thought:

You wake up, and it’s 1918.

What are you qualified to do?

My automatic response is, I’d be a teacher, but maybe not, because in many jurisdictions, once a woman married, she was expected to retire. And I’d most likely not be teaching in higher education, as most of these jobs went to men.

And at my age, I’d definitely be retired if this were 1918.

(I saw this question on social media yesterday morning, and it’s intrigued me. Tip of the hat to Eric Alper on Twitter for the idea.)
