Kylah Owens's insight:

This speech audio was the oath the women swore into before joining the military. The women were treated just like men, no sympathy giving to them because it was not giving to men. These women swore to serve on October 28, 1943. The Womans Army Corps bill was signed on July 1, 1943. Hearing the voices of the woman just makes it more real. They were vowign to obey by there giving rules for 6 months. Once you swear in you can't swear out.

By the end of World II women had proven themself to the world. We finaly earned MOST respect. A lot f men still seen wome as less than them and thsoe are the problems that we still face today.

The American Homefront [ushistory.org] Website #3

The American Homefront [ushistory.org] Website #3 | Women Homefront During WWII | Scoop.it
Kylah Owens's insight:

The whole Women Front idea seems to have been prolonged from the wife of Franklin D. Roosevelt. She convinced Franklin to create the the womens auxiliary forces for the army, navy airforce , and coast gaurd. Every one knows that most women had to be convinced to join the work force, but along with being convinced to join the work force everyone was convinced to grow there own raw goods. There whole purpose was to recycle as much goods as they could so the soldiers would never run out of anything or need for anything. The grown goods were known as the "back yard " products. Along with women being the biggest help to the WWII as retired elders and teen contributed as well.

Kylah Owens's insight:

The day after the attack on Pearl Habor the United States and Great Britian declared war on Japan. In 1942 around the spring a program was established that set limits on certian goods that people needed. They wanted to use as much product as they could for the war which meant most Americans had to recycle products to reuse them. Americans purchased war bonds which helped pay for high cost of armed conflict. During this time all Americans tried to help with the war in any way that they could.

Since You Went Away ( letter )

Since You Went Away ( letter ) | Women Homefront During WWII | Scoop.it
The University Press of Kansas publishes scholarly and regional books that contribute to the understanding of Kansas, the Great Plains, and the Midwest.
Kylah Owens's insight:

Since You Were Away became a book full of letters from American women on the home front. From the first letter you can really tell that this war changed these women. Going to war was not a good thing but it brought out the positive in the women. They relied on men for everything. The ladies really couldn't complain or argue because the men were the ones bringing home the money. For the longest, working has always been a mans job and taking care of children, cooking, and cleanng was left to the ladies to take care of. They never realy had a voice. When the men went off to war they had to take care of everything which made them independent. What would you need to rely on a man for now that you've took care of your household and worked outside of home all on your own. " More and more I've been living exactly as I want to. . . I do as I damm please."

The Australian Home Front during World War 2 - Women ( Picture ) | Women Homefront During WWII | Scoop.it
Kylah Owens's insight:

This picture symbolizes the many jobs and task woman took on during World War II. Rather it was joining the air force, military, or having a factory job, all women played a role. This picture is a prime example of the propagand used throughout WWII. The women in the image are portraying women who are just honored to be doing there job. They wanted other women to look at this picture and feel like this was the right thing to do and only thing you should do. Propaganda got the government a lot of what they wanted during these times.

As in World War One, women played a vital part in this country?s success in World War Two. But, as with World War One, women at the end of World War Two, found that the advances they had made were g
Kylah Owens's insight:

By the end of World War II woman gained a lot of respect. In WWII women began working in factories due to the draft of men. Women working outside of their homes was very shocking. They were steppping outside of their 'housewives" role. They weren't getting paid as much as the man that they were working with got paid. When they found that out they started a strike against it. The war mad them stronger today and made them as equal to men whenevwer body thought men was above all else.

Rosie the Riveter: Women Working During World War II Website #2

Kylah Owens's insight:

When the men were drafted off to the war the government had no choice but to put women  to work to take the spots of the men that left. A lot of women weren't necessarily to happy about working outside of their homes. The men didn't like the change either. They didn't want their wives doing any work outside of house work. The government had to use propaganda to get the women to work in these factories. They made it seem like the women that were willing to work were loyal women. Since women had to leave their homes to go to work the government was concerned that there would be a rise in juvenile delinquency.
