During this time, women made up 27% of the work force. Some women worked white-collar office-staff jobs, manufacturing jobs, domestic service jobs, and agriculture jobs. The first generation of college-educated women entered the work force at this time. However, they were only able to find jobs labeled as "women's professions." This included teaching, nursing, and social working. Men obtained most of the same jobs as in the 1900s, but many lost their jobs due to the depression.
