Women in workplace
What Men Don't Like About Women was written by Thomas D Horton and published in 1945Wikimedia Commons

An excerpt from a book called What Men Don't Like About Women, published in 1945, has exposed the extent of vintage sexism.

Sophie Gadd, a University of York student, posted on Twitter wartime author Thomas Horton's views about women in the office.

The book was originally praised in adverts at the time as being daring and brave. It features complaints about women and came with the disclaimer: "Don't read it to a women."

If you have ever been curious as to why women are the worst drinkers, friends or terrible at making meal decisions, Horton explains everything.

The list - specifically about women in the workplace - suggests the "initial impoliteness" is the top annoyance, followed by their "assumptions with regard to lunch".

Also on the list is the "open-faced bid for a free dinner" and a "lack of consideration".

The criticisms are not limited to meal choices, however. Horton takes a dig at women's "pretended culture" and their "free medical advice" - neither of which make particular sense.

Women's sex lives were also on the hit list, with our "lack of shame" and "unfair sex practices".
