Women at Work
Betty Soskin tells reporter Eli Wirtschafter about her own experience in the World War II era workforce -- and why popular remembrances of women working for the war effort don’t capture the whole story. Legal historian Risa Goluboff walks host Brian Balogh through the history of laws meant to protect women at work -- and why some women weren’t too fond of them. And, with the help of historians Nathan Ensmenger and Margaret O’Mara, BackStory producer Andrew Parsons brings us the story of early computer programmers, who were almost all women, and how that trend flipped.
