This volume, a social history, focuses on the role American women played in the workforce during World War II. It describes the huge mobilization of labour necessary to supply US armed forces with machinery and weapons, and the evolution of women's roles in industry as a result of this. The book provides an overview of the diverse roles adopted by women in one of the most crucial periods of 20th century history, as depicted by new reports, magazine articles and personal diaries of the time.
