40. Yes in the 1960/70s, some women were really upset about the idea of women's rights.

They felt women should stay at home and raise children.
Not work, and certainly not get into professional schools, or make more money than men.
They agreed with a lot of the men who said women were not smart or emotionally stable enough to work in "male" professionals and could only be secretaries, teachers and nurses.

When I was young, those were the only career choices for most women.
Women could not get into med or law school or other graduate programs.
It began to change around 1974.
