The Nazi regime changed the lives of Germans in many different ways One of the most targeted groups within society were German women However it has long been debated whether a social revolution ever happened in German womens lives during the Nazi period and if so to what extent the Nazi regime revolutionised womens lives The first view that historians put across is that there was a complete revolution in the lives of German women during the Nazi period This view can be supported by several different historical events and sources Womens lives were totally changed by Nazi policies for example the use of such offers as marriage loans brought in with the Law for the Encouragement of Marriage These loans offered 1000 Reichsmarks to newly wed couple about nine months worth of wages The loans could be paid off in children two children would mean 50 of the loan was paid four meant that 100 of the loan was paid or money These loans were responsible for the huge rise in the amount of women marrying 800000 couple took up the offer of the loan However there were several conditions that had to be met Before a loan was given the woman involved in the marriage must not be working showing that these loans affected the working force of women as well as the amount of women considering marriage The workforce of German women was perhaps where a revolution was most likely to be said to occur as it was where the most change took place In Weimar Germany it is estimated that there was 100000 women teachers 3000 female doctors and roughly 13000 female musicians During the Nazi government many of these women were sacked or moved to work in the areas of the economy that did not involve Nazi politics This first jobs to have women removed from were jobs such as doctors or civil servants as they were considered
