Activist Avery headed an effort with the National Woman's Party in the mid-1930s to repeal Section 213 of the Hoover administration's Economy Act of 1932, which prohibited two spouses from both working for the federal government during the Depression. Avery knew that this meant the wife would have to resign. Congress repealed Section 213 in July 1937.
