Turn back the clock 100 years.  Fenway Park was brand new and people were still talking about the unsinkable Titanic sitting at the bottom of the ocean.  If you were a female teacher, and 99 percent of teachers were women that time, you would be expected to sign a contract with the Boston Public Schools.  These are actual rules that you would have agreed to as part of the contract:

-You will not marry during the term of your contract.                                                                                                     -You are not to keep company with men.                                                                                                                                -You must be home between the hours of 8:00pm and 6:00am, unless you are attending a school function.                                                                                                                                                                                                 -You may not loiter in downtown ice cream stores.                                                                                                          -You may not ride in a carriage or automobile with any man, unless he is your father or brother.              -You may not smoke cigarettes.                                                                                                                                                 -You may, under no circumstances, dye your hair.                                                                                                          -At school, you must always wear 2 petticoats.

How many of those rules are still being enforced in 100 years later?
