Although feminism has made its contribution to the American woman's improved status, many conditions are operative in shaping her present life pattern over which women themselves have had little control. These influences have been found in our economic growth, which has created a need for women in paid employment; in work mechanization, which has increased the number of jobs to which women are physically adapted; in generally better working conditions; in a new psychological need among women; and in our social philosophy. Even though the greater number and variety of work opportunities was cited as a major factor in drawing women into the labor force, closely related to this cause is the awareness of self-image arid the need for satisfaction.
