When Roger Sperry was beginning his work America was in the midst of World War 2. While men were being sent overseas it was opening a new door for women in the American Dream. Instead of just wanting a husband, a family, and a place to call home women now had the opportunity to seek out employment which was a new financial freedom. This would allow woman with or without a husband to make her own money. By the time the war was over instead of quitting their jobs, women began to take on more jobs in the workplace until they married or became pregnant.
