May 25, 1942: Tom Treanor, who was killed covering World War II, visits a munitions factory and writes about women in the workplace.
Interviewing a foreman, Treanor says: I asked him him how he stood it bossing 150 women doing such irritating inspection jobs.
“I’m getting gray,” he said.
“What’s the trouble?”
“You know women,” he said. “They’re unreasonable. You can’t tell them anything. They’re just as unreasonable on the job as they are at home.”
