While this discrimination was not "de jure" is was definitely "de facto". Many women found their employment terminated when they wed or when the war ended. I have spoken to many women about these years and it was true. In addition, there was a strong social impetuos that married men automatically needed a hire salary than their unmarried female counterparts - regardless of education, experience, etc. In fact, this sentiment exists today, in my personal experience. The law might say one thing, but real life is another thing.
