'100 Years Of Workplace Fashion' Shows How Far Working Women Have Come


Over the past 100 years, the workforce has transformed in a number of ways — one of the most exciting ways being the number of women who have entered. Today American women have more opportunities than ever before, with progress still being made all the time. To give us a little history lesson on what this progress looks like through the lens of women's fashion, Glamour magazine presented "100 Years of Workplace Fashion," a fun informative video showing the evolution of women's office attire over the past century. 

In the video, we get a glimpse at how far we've come, decade by decade. 


In 1920, the United States Women's Bureau was founded to work toward parity for women in the labor force.

By the 1940s, women took over jobs commonly held by men because they were fighting in World War II.

In the 1970s, women were celebrated for not being dependent on their family.

By the '90s, more and more women were pursuing higher education.

Today, women are offered more opportunities and ways to express their individuality than ever before.

There is still more work to be done in order for women to be equal to men in the workforce. Women still earn less than men on average for doing the same work and the gap is even worse for women of color.  So, while we continue to make progress, we can do it in versatile styles and watch Glamour's video and realize just how far we've come.
