Once the war was over and the men began to return home, women were expected to return to the kitchens and hearths as before, and women in the army lost their
I want to become a palliative social worker. I have dealt with many different hospice social workers in the last 20 years. I feel that it takes a special person to do the job that they have taken on due to dealing with the end of life issues that the patient and families are encountering.

The work required to sustain a family in the rather bleak environmental situations of the early colonies was demanding for all. It is clear that a separation of labor existed in the colonial America. Women were to handle work that was generally associated with females, such as sewing, cooking, taking care of domestic animals, and making many of the necessities used in the household such as soap, candles, clothing and other necessities. In addition, because the survival of the family depended upon the contribution of every family member, including children, once they were old enough to work, women often had to step in to

She was lying in bed with severe pain, prescribed with a couple of narcotics to control it. Despite being warned by the doctor of the pain she will go through if she lives the hospital after the procedure, she was forced to leave for the fear of how much it will cost her to stay overnight. I tended to the needs of my ill aunt and during this period of time, the idea of playing nurse never crossed my mind; rather, care giving was a way of life.
Their whole lives revolved around taking care of the house, kids and husband. For example when their husband came home from `a hard day of work' their wife would have cold drinks and finger food snacks waiting for them (Scott, p. 225).

Demographics show that “43% of mother-headed families live in poverty” (Amber). After a divorce, many women who have been housewives or homemakers are suddenly forced to join the workforce. Many of these women are not only forced to support themselves, but they are also now forced to be the sole caretakers of the children from the marriage.
