There were several reasons. Women were considered not to have the stamina to work long hours (outside of the home, that is). Women, as a whole, supposedly would not have the minds able to understand something so unfeminine. It was thought that women would take the jobs from men who needed them, and that families would suffer greatly with the women not home. Men did not want to supervisor or work with women.
