When her husband won a seat on the New York Senate, she was initiated into the position of “official wife.” Today, we often take for granted the amount of work and responsibility that our First Ladies carry out. Michelle Obama, for example, promoted healthier food regulations in schools. In Eleanor’s time, the official wife’s job was to attend and host formal parties and make social calls.

“Like all other women I thought that there couldn’t be much improvement in the same old task of washing dishes.” This quote by Christine Frederick in 1912 speaks so much truth about the way women lived before the 1920s. Many women had believed that they were sought out to stay at home and be the regular housewife that the American people portrayed them to be. None of them probably believed that they would soon get the privilege to vote, have a job, or to even dress a little less modestly. They would soon come to the realization that their way of life would be changed when the 1920s came rushing in.

Menard-Warwick chose two of her female Latino English Language learner students, Camila and Trini, to interview since she thought they were most representative of all the English learning students. As a female, Camila is expected to stay at home and take care of her children and is given less important. For example, Camila refused to attend an English Learning Class only because of the $70 tuition fee, and she explained that if she uses the $70 for herself, there would be “less money for her husband’s dream [of buying a house]”. Learning English is also for the sake of family. Camila’s husband later asked her to learn English because they want to take better care of her son and to be able to communicate with him in times of need.
They also had the option of being an overworked nurse in a filthy hospital, or being a “searcher”, a person that tries to find the cause of disease in the deceased (Gale). Since these two jobs were out of the question for many, most women decided to get married. The things that a housewife would have to do depended on her husband’s occupation, but most importantly depended on keeping him happy and satisfied (Gale). For example, a shopkeeper’s wife would have to keep account of all the books and keep a stable household, while a farmer’s wife would have to run to the market to sell cheese, eggs, etc (Gale). Women in the higher classes had more free time, which was spent on things like singing, dancing, and writing letters to one another (Gale).
