Although there are some women that settle for lesser paying jobs, the females that are doing the some work as their male counterparts are getting less money than them.

Social attitude towards women is what fuels and hinders their success in a society. The social attitudes changed dramatically from the 1920 's to the 1930 's. The 1920 's was a period where women were starting to approach the idea of female freedom and female identity. In order for them to achieve some female freedom and female identity social attitudes needed to change.

Despite the common understanding that women are not fit to lead, especially in Islamic countries, the Ottoman Empire, one of the greatest and strongest in the world made a great use of women as leaders. These women that marks the Ottoman history were all operating in the shadow of a male Sultan, however the public was well aware of their important role. The Sultanate of Women (Kadınlar Saltanatı) is the 130 years period where women ruled the Ottoman Empire by using their full political and diplomatic power.

Women in the Ottoman Empire seemed to live much better lives than people would have imagined for that time period. Women had rights regarding inheritance, marriage, divorce, and the like which they had not had prior to the introduction of Islam. Although men had authority over women, the women, however, were allowed to go to court to challenge actions that deviated from religious prescriptions and women often won these cases. The situation in the Ottoman Empire was no different. There were the less wealthy people who could not afford more than one wife and who usually lived as a family group, sometimes all in one home, - parents, married couple, children and possibly other dependents such as foster children, and in some instances, servants who were considered part of the family.
She would rather be able to identify with and relate more to a man from similar conditions than the supposed ‘sister’ from the polished society.
