NEW ANSWER:

American women, limited as they were by laws and denied rights, such a voting- would benefit from the openness of American Society, during the Colonial Period, and even after. The flexibility of a society still being formed led to the lifting of many restrictions on women's work and made new opportunities available. Unlike British women, American women could own land in many areas. In early New England, women who headed families were given land for planting. Though unmarried women did not usually fare as well, they did receive small plots.

Most of the work for women was done in the home. However, some women worked outside of the home in taverns; ran schools; mills; distilleries; shop's. Women were also known to work in sawmills; paper mills; and gristmills.

Some women would raise garden seeds for sale; made and sold preserves; wines; and lace.

**************************************************************

Women were mothers and only mothers! Women stayed home to take care of there family! They cooked and cleaned and took care/raised their children! I don't know all the details though!

My grandmother worked in a factory until she married around 1890; my mother worked following her college graduation in 1932 until she retired in the 1960s. Before that women did most of the same work as men did, especially during the revolutionary and civil wars and especially as society moved into the wilderness. Native American woman did much of the work that we now consider "men's work". Slave women worked side by side with their male counterparts in the fields and black woman were instrumental in developing and educating the black communities after the Civil. Louisa May Alcott, a single woman, supported her whole extended family until her death. Going back even further and father afield, there's Queen Elizabeth I, Queen Elizabeth II, and Catherine the Great, just to name a few. And don't forget the world's oldest profession.

i was talking to my grandmother the other day about when she was young and she told me she had many jobs to do. Monday's were wash day where all the clothing and bedding would have to be done. she would be at the wash house from 8am to 8pm washing,rincing,and drying all the clothing .also there were ironing days were women would iron everything and put away spending all day ironing. cleaning for women were harder back then than it is now.floors had to be scrubbed and when cleaning a room everything would be placed in the middle of the room and as one part had be cleaned as well as floor being scrubbed the items would be put back into place.ths was in the 1950s Mother also had other jobs when the husband wasent around.

Women were more often homemakers or worked small craft jobs before the World Wars. After World War II, so much changed because women had to work during the war to make up for the missing men in the workforce.

It is hard to answer the question not knowing the war. Women traditionally have not have any rights to bank accounts, business, or jobs. Until recently women left widows from war had nothing to fall back on. In WW2 many women worked in jobs for the war effort.

Before World War II, women's role was primarily in the home, raising a family and keeping the home in order.
