Women working in WWII provided the proof that dispelled the perception that women could not be equal to male workers. Their productivity surprised the enemy and the nation’s leaders. Women's Work in WWII tells the history of millions of women working in thousands of roles with minimal training and no experience but fully confident that they were equal to filling the roles of men they replaced.
It tells the chronological story about the zigzag social and political developments that enabled women to eventually gain equal employment in thousands of jobs coupled with the parallel story of WWII. After the war when these same women worked in and with Congress, with the president, the unions and across the courts. Their goal was simple, restore equal pay for equal work and provide a workplace that is free from gender discrimination.
The book uses over 400 vintage photos to bring life their accomplishments. It's historical documentation that correlates to today’s new age struggles of how to make a difference.
