-Air Force What were some roles of women
in army in World War II? Women took on men’s roles by working their jobs to gain money to support their families. What did women do to support
their families? Yes, women were secret agents at that time.
They were called Special Operations Executive (SOE).
Their work was to find out all that they could
to support the Allies for the planned landings in Normandy Were women secret agents at this time? What did they do? As for employment, 21% were mothers, 41% were defense workers, 14% were not employed, 11% were professional workers and the remaining 13% were categorized "miscellaneous." How many women worked men’s jobs? propaganda campaign: Based in small part on a real-life munitions worker,
but primarily a fictitious character, the strong, bandanna-clad Rosie became one of the most successful recruitment tools in American history, and the most iconic image of working women during World War II What was
“Rosie the Riveter”? Women started taking part in the war.
They also began having spots in government
and were able to take job’s they could not before. How were women’s rights changing? About 350,000 were in Armed Services How many women served in the Armed Services? How did the image of women change during this time? Women went from being simple home markers/care takers to successful workers. They started to show their strength and the knowledge to be independent. What were some quotes used in posters for women’s rights? -“We Can Do It!”
-“Do the job HE left behind”
-“Good work sister! We never figured you could do a man-sized job”
-“Of course I can” How did women’s home life change during this time? Since women began taking on men’s jobs, they also needed to work on entertainment. Women began entertaining and trying to balance and organize food. How did women’s work place change during this time? Women’s work place changed drastically during World War II. They became major parts of the government system and completely changed views on how women should be portrayed. How did the economy change as women took the place of males? As women took the place of the males during World War II, older women began working for reasons as to they could not do it before. They were able to get the experience of an actual “job” What were some activities women did in World War II that did not involve war or work? Women started doing things to entertain them. They started doing shows and preforming in plays to help put restless people at ease about what was happening. Overall, how did women’s rights change from World War I to World War II? Women became more powerful during this time. They realized that they didn’t have to just take care of the home or be at the men’s jobs. They realized they too could be a part of the army and be part of the bigger picture. The women sparked the freedom and independence for all women. What are something’s you have learned during this project? Something I have learned in this project is that it does not matter if the job seems to tuff. You can always do it if you just put faith into yourself. You personally can help spark some great things if you truly put your mind to it.
