Women and children in Nazi Germany:

During the Nazi era, women were discouraged to do many things, such as women do nowadays. Women were not encouraged to do work, such as pursuit jobs from outside, they were only allowed to work in the home. They were expected to extend their families, especially if they belonged to the Aryan race. Women were expected to have at least four children. Nazis introduced the Marriage Loan to encourage women to have children.

As women were able to bear more children, the Nazis tried to prevent women from wearing make-up. They thought that it might influence the role of having German women not being able to be the perfect houswife.

Women were trained to be good housewifes.
