Diane | 1943 comments She had to work harder in the homestead than her brother. Women generally worked harder than the males. She also wasn't taken seriously when she made the resolve to work to save for tuition to attend school. When she did get the money, her father wanted to take it away for the homestead instead of allowing her to go to school. She and the rest of the females slept on the floor of the smokey kitchen while the males had better sleeping arrangements.
