User: How did the New Deal affect women, African Americans, and Native Americans

Weegy: In some ways, the New Deal represented an important opportunity for minorities and women, but what these groups gained was limited. [ Long standing patterns of prejudice and discrimination continued to plague them and to prevent their full and equal participation in national life. One of the most notable changes during the New deal was the naming of several women to important government positions. Frances Perkins became America's first female cabinet member. As secretary of labor, she played a major role in creating the Social Security system and supervised labor legislation. President Roosevelt, encouraged by his wife Eleanor and seeking the support of women voters, also appointed two female diplomats and a female federal judge. However, women continued to face discrimination in the workplace from male workers who believed that working women took jobs away from men. A Gallup poll taken in 1936 reported that 82 percent of Americans said that a wife should not work if her husband had a job. Additionally, New Deal laws yielded mixed results. The National Recovery Administration, for example, set wage codes, some of which set lower minimum wages for women. The Federal Emergency Relief Administration and the Civil Works Administration hired far fewer women than me, and the Civilian Conservation Corps hired only men. In spite of these barriers, women continued their movement into the workplace. Although the overall percentage of women working for wages increased only slightly during the 1930s, the percentage of married women in the workplace grew from 11.7 percent in 1930 to 15.6 percent in 1940. In short, widespread criticism of working women did not halt the long term trend of women working outside of home. ]

User: What factors led the wartime alliance between the United States and the Soviet Union to disintegrate into the Cold War?

User: What were the key aspects of Lyndon B. Johnson’s Great Society

User: Did the Watergate scandal have any lasting effects on the nation? Explain

Weegy: Continuing distrust of the government, [ especially the Executive by many people and ongoing rampant efforts by people in the Reagan and Bush administrations to return to what level of power they believe the Executive should have - with the result that they ram through expansion whenever they can which (I and others believe) has led to the Bush invasions of the Near East, the violations of the Constitution in the name of Security, and the attempts to turn the government to feed money and people to private industry supporters of the President. ]
