Your "men were the hunters, women were the foragers" is actually pretty inaccurate as well. In primitive times and even colonial/frontier eras, men were the hunters AND the foragers. Women cared for the home. Why? Because that's where the children are, and since it's women having them and women feeding them (breastfeeding), they were kind of stuck. Didn't mean anything about ability.In the 40s as you also brought up, men worked and women stayed at home because men had spent the better part of the last few hundred years making sure that women didn't have any options that men didn't give them. Happily for women, that changed.
