Here’s an old advert for the Metropolitan Police recruitment aimed at women with misogynistic overtones that really won’t fly in this day and age.

In the 1940s, London’s Metropolitan Police force was looking for fairly good looking female officers, and they must be hefty enough to withstand a “rough and tumble.”
These women must never marry or their career with end! They will answer to Sir Philip Game, the Met’s Chief Commissioner from 1935 until 1945. His vital statistics are not revealed.
