Marriage Vows And Economic Discrimination: The Married Teacher Problem, Sabrina Thomas Jul 2013

Marriage Vows And Economic Discrimination: The Married Teacher Problem, Sabrina Thomas

Sabrina Thomas

This study analyzes the rapid increase of economic discrimination against married women teachers in the early twentieth century, particularly during the Depression.
