Top 9 Reasons that Women Cannot Be Trade Commissioners

Female Trade Commissioners

Things were different in the 1960s ...
Today it’s hard to imagine this departmental minute actually being written, let alone seeing the light of day.

Dated 13 March 1963, this note from an officer of the Trade Commissioner Service to his director outlines nine reasons why women should not be appointed trade commissioners.

Possible drawbacks included:

* not being able to mix freely with businessmen
* the possibility of turning into a ‘battleaxe’
* having to run a household as well as holding down a job
* taking the place of a man


Well we have moved ahead a little I suppose ~ but what if things never changed? remember ladies, you can't keep a good job and household without turning into a 'battleaxe' and your inability to mix with businessmen makes your taking the mans place uneasy with the rest of us. So keep to your own station and enjoy it ~ you should be there a long, long time.
