Women In Military Service For America Memorial - CONNECTION TO TODAY

Women In Military Service For America Memorial - CONNECTION TO TODAY | Women in the Military in WW2 | Scoop.it
Tim'misha Dupree's insight:

Women worked 2 and 3 times harder during WWII. When WWII began and women started working, they had double responsibility. They had to do their military duties and than go home and still do their house duties, and take care of their children. Women worked hard to prove themselves to men. Today Women have jobs that they enjoy, not jobs chosen by men that they think is feminine enough for women to do. Women have came so far and worked so hard to get equality. They made a huge difference and a lot of women now days are taking care of themselves and children with no help. so GREAT JOB LADIES OF THE PAST, PRESENT, & FUTURE!!!

Women of World War II - CONNECTION TO TODAY

Women of World War II - CONNECTION TO TODAY | Women in the Military in WW2 | Scoop.it
Tim'misha Dupree's insight:

This website Tells the work women did in each organization. This website relates to todays time. If World War II didn't occur would women be working equally like men now? Or would women still be housewives? This shows the hard work women put into WWII. They proved themselves to the men of the U.S, showing that they can work just as hard as men. That they can do more than just house work and taking care of children. They showed that they can be independent and supply for themselves and their family just like the man. Women took their jobs serious during WWII, and because of that Women in present day have the chance to work in what ever field they want, whether its known as a mens job or not.

Primary source 1: African American WAAC Officers

Primary source 1: African American WAAC Officers | Women in the Military in WW2 | Scoop.it
Tim'misha Dupree's insight:

African American WAAC officers recruit for the racially segregated armed forces.

 this shows that politcal and social leaders agreed that both women and men had to change their perception on gender roles; as long as theirs a national emergency. this also shows that even though at this time the men didn't judge or get upset cause women were working, it was still kind of segregated because African American women could only work in the war for other African American men in the war.
