This article appears to be a dictionary definition.
A career woman describes a woman whose main priority in life is achieving success in her career and profession. These women can also be described as more interested in her career than in being married and having children.
The phrase was first coined in the thirties as a way to remind women that a career does not have a greater importance than her husband and family. This term was mainly used from the early thirties to mid nineties. <ref>Orange, Michelle (2017). "Professional Lives: Career Women on Film". Virginia Quarterly. 93: 178–181 – via Project MUSE.
