The number of woman who served in the military during WWII was more than the total number of men serving in the military in 1939.

The large number of women involved in the war and the scale of the war itself led these changes to be seen in a far greater picture.

More women served in the U.S. military during WWII then the U.S. Armed Forces had men prior to the war. Sharing the story behind the history of women who served during WWII is a complex and exciting. The discussion on policy development, cultural expectations, social norms, race relationships, and citizenship can be fascinating. The sheer numbers of women in the military and the global significance of World War II reinforce the impact they had on the current nation.
