This editorial in the Greenfield Daily Recorder-Gazette highlights one reaction to the changing role of women caused by the Great Depression. During the depression many women took jobs to increase family incomes reduced by male unemployment, also, women's work in the home became more important as families struggled to make do with less. These changes may have improved the social status of women. The author of this editorial warns against women becoming more like men. Liberated women "have neglected their spiritual powers to become Amazons." The author suggests that these spiritual powers may make women superior to men by "turn[ing] the economies of man's world into a more humane civilization."
