Disney Rejection Letter, Circa 1938

Disney Rejection Letter, Circa 1938: "The thing that totally sucks about applying for a job is that you may face rejection -- and depending on which industry you're looking to work in, that rejection may come in the form of a letter. Some rejection letters then become more popular than others, especially if the person being rejected turned out to be a famous author (see this NPR piece about that) or ... a woman. See, back in 1938 it was awfully hard to find good work as a woman -- mainly because most (if not all) of the sought-after jobs were being given to men."
