Supervising Women Workers was one of the first real attempts to address the fact that women were taking over men’s jobs during the manpower shortages of World War II. When “Joe,” a factory worker, admits to the boss that he’s scared of his new female coworkers and doesn’t know how to behave around them, his boss gives him a lesson on the female mind. According to the film, women were highly individualistic, jealous, slow to pick up on instructions, and “not naturally familiar with mechanical principles.” He also, among other things, warns Joe not to “mix business with pleasure.” Supervising Women Workers represents American businesses’ difficulty and confusion about how to deal with the “problem” of female workers, and ends up surfacing the rigid sexism and discrimination that was accepted at the time.
