Working Girls

My friend Kristin sent me a nice article from 1943, written for male supervisors of women in the work force during World War II.

Helpful Hint #8:

"Give every girl adequate rest periods during the day. You have to make allowances for feminine pshychology. A girl has more confidence and is more efficient if she can keep her hair tidied, apply fresh lipstick and wash her hands several times a day."

Sound advice. Nothing wrong with incorporating a little glamor and practicing good hygiene during the work day. Perhaps if men brushed their hair and washed their mouths out with soap several times a day, they'd have more confidence and be more efficient, too.

A girl also has more confidence when she's properly caffeinated!

That was such a useful hint -- I'd like to know the rest!
