• By 1944, one third of defense workers were former full-time homemakers.

  • WWII was the first time in U.S. history married women out numbered single women workers.

  • By 1944 more than 3 million women made up 22% of all trade union membership in the U.S.

The presentation tells the story about the workplace momentum that built during WWII as 16 million men were drafted and women steadily increased their ability to take ever increasing responsibilities. We highlight the struggles and accomplishments that women made during the war, both in the military as well as in the workforce in general. Dozens of vintage photographs are used to reinforce the stories. We close the presentation highlighting the early 1970s and the revolution that took place in Congress.
