9. "Are you married?", "Do you have children?"

"How are you going to work when your kids get sick?" These were very COMMON questions that employers asked women back in the good old days. Been there, done that. Employers didn't want to HIRE females back then because they could get PREGNANT and have to take time off from work.

THIS is why being able to control your body is so crucial. If they won't hire you because you are a woman who cannot control when you get pregnant, all the jobs in the world isn't going to matter.

Maybe Queen Ann can have 7 kids and not have to worry about them with her Nannies, but a WORKING woman will.
