Something I knew, and lived through, but was recently reminded of

This is a fact. Nothing to debate.


Before I was married, I could not get a credit card. Even though I was employed and had a sizable savings account.


Banks could refuse women a credit card until the Equal Credit Opportunity Act of 1974 was signed into law. Prior to that, a bank could refuse to issue a credit card to an unmarried woman, and if a woman was married, her husband was required to cosign.”
