Baer, Mildred. Professionals and entrepreneurs.

Professionals and entrepreneurs.

Presents the oral histories of nineteen women who entered professions and/or became successful entrepreneurs in the early part of the 20th century. Many of them entered professions that were more welcoming to women, like nursing and teaching, but even these women often pushed the limits of those professions. Others forged successful careers in the arts, media, entertainment, and in academia, although the journalists and radio personalities were often relegated to women's pages and programs and the academicians were in fields traditionally dominated by women. Generally, the women in the professions were more likely to be single, including divorced mothers. On the other hand, among the married women, those who became entrepreneurs were more successful at combining and balancing business and family life.
