Many years ago, people often said “A woman's place is in the home”. But Americans do not feel that way anymore. Today, women make up about 43 percent of the American labor force. There are about 45 million working women in the United States, and a large number of them are married women with children. In 1980, for the first time in the nation's history, there were more working wives than household wives. Looking back to 1940, we can see pictures of some very rapid changes. In 1940, only 15 percent of married women held jobs.

Today, most young women choose to work even when they have young children. Why do they work? The most important reason is that they need to earn money. But another reason is that women today are better educated and they have more opportunities to work in various professions than women had earlier.

Read the passage and answer the questions.

Foot racing is a popular activity in the United States. It is seen not only as a competitive sport but also as a way to exercise, to enjoy the camaraderie of like-minded people, and to donate money to a good cause. Though serious runners may spend months training to compete, other runners and walkers might not train at all. Those not competing to win might run in an effort to beat their own time or simply to enjoy the fun and exercise. People of all ages, from those of less than one year (who may be pushed in strollers) to those in their eighties, enter into this sport. The races are held on city streets, on college campuses, through parks, and in suburban areas, and they are commonly 5 to 10 kilometers in length. 

The largest foot race in the world is the 12-kilometer Bay to Breakers race that is held in San Francisco every spring. This race begins on the east side of the city near San Francisco Bay and ends on the west side of the Pacific Ocean. There may be 80,000 or more people running in this race through the streets and hills of San Francisco. In the front are the serious runners who compete to win and who might finish in as little as 34 minutes. Behind them are the thousands who take several hours to finish. In the back of the race are those who dress in costumes and come just for fun. One year there was a group of men who dressed like Elvis Presley, and another group consisted of firefighters who were tied together in a long line and who were carrying a fire hose. There was even a bridal party, in which the bride was dressed in a long white gown and the groom wore a tuxedo. The bride and groom threw flowers to bystanders, and they were actually married at some point along the route.
