Women in U.S.Navy, WAVES, World War II

Women in combat during Desert Shield/Desert Storm
Stephanie Her's insight:

This document is a report that talks about women's role during World War 2. Basically it talks about how women's were a big help during the war. The army wants the women's to study into solider human factors. To research family factors. By February 37 thousand women joined the U.S forces. Women's were treated just like men and had the same responsibility as them too. During this time the U.S was actually going good for the Americans. They were starting to build up.

A history of Women in the U.S military.

Stephanie Her's insight:


During the Mexican War the women’s dressed as men’s as a disguise. Elizabeth C. was one of the women’s who dressed in male attire and joined the military at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas.  In World War I many women’s started to work in factories to help the war out. Many women’s would help by making war equipment for the war. Women’s were a big help during the War. About 24 percent women’s made up the aviation plant workers in America

Stephanie Her's insight:

This document is a photograph of a women that is working in a factory called Allis-Chalmers. This women in the picture doesn't look too happy, but she sure does seem focus on her work. She seems to be busy at work. I think this picture was created to show other people how hard these women worked. Allis-Chalmer manufacturing company created this document and this was picture was token in 1942.

FOCUS QUESTION


Paragraph #1: Explain your topic knowing that your audience does not have any prior knowledge (other students). You must provide expert information and evidence from your research in clear and focused sentences. (12 sentences)

Paragraph #2: How did your WW2 topic effect or change society, the economy, culture or future of America? What influence did it have and for how long? Provide examples and evidence from your research. (12 sentences)

Stephanie Her's insight:

 

During World War II America was going into war and they needed everyone they can have to help out. “Women have served in military conflicts since the American Revolution, but World War II was the first time that women served in the United State”. Women’s in America played a big role during World War II. This was their time to shine and make a difference in the world.  Many people believed that the women’s participation was the reason why they won.

 

 

 

In the women’s military they have different branches of serving the war like Women’s Army Auxiliary Corps, the Women Accepted for Volunteer Military Service, the Women Air force Service Pilots and the SPARS. “About 70% of women who served in the military during the World II held traditionally “female” jobs”. Almost every woman in America had a job during the World War II.

 

 

 

They were either sorting mail, being a clerk, or being a mechanism, If they didn’t have a job they were either being housewives. “One way that women participated in dangerous work was through their work in the Army and Navy medical corps”. Some women’s wanted to do something bigger than just sorting mail and being a clerk. They wanted to be apart of the military and help out the War.

 

 

 

I believe that women’s in the military did change society a lot. It gave hope to some women’s that they can actually do something and that America is equal. When I mean by equal I mean that America doesn’t belong to men’s, but women’s too. “ Several Minnesota women made great contributions to the U.S. war effort during World War II”. Women’s were making a difference in U.S and achieved their goals.

 

 

 

 “Anne Bosanko Green took time off her studies at the University of Minnesota and joined the WAV where she worked in a hospital as a surgical assistant”.  I think that World War II influenced Anne to join, because maybe she knew that her people needed more women’s to help with this kind of stuff. Being a surgical assistant isn’t easy and it’s hard work.

 

 

 

I think World War affected the women’s future. It gave them more opportunity’s to actually do something. Back then women’s couldn’t do anything. They couldn’t speak for themselves and they wanted that for so long and I feel like World War II helped them get what they wanted. All women’s have dreams and they want to successful and World War II help them.

Early women Soldiers

http://www.army.mil/women/history.html

Stephanie Her's insight:


I have learned that Women’s back in the days were a big help. They cooked for people and were nurses. Not just that they had big roles like becoming an assistant surgeon, nurse, spies, etc. They were hardworking people and they cared about United States. Margaret Corbin and her husband were both serving the war together. He was going to be hit by a canon and he could of probably died, but he didn’t. His wife took his place at the canon. She didn’t die, but she was wounded. She was a brave person and not most people would do that for others.

Highlights in the History of Military Women.

 

 http://www.womensmemorial.org/Education/timeline.htm

Stephanie Her's insight:

 

What I have learned from this website was that the during the World War II Japanese would capture women’s and were held as POWS for years. They went through a rough time when they were captured.  Eventually they were saved.  The first black nurse in history was lieutenant Colonel Margaret E, and Lieutenant Nancy C was the first black woman to become a member of the regular Army nurse corps. Many women’s in the United States wanted to help their country so they found variety of ways of helping American causes.  Many of the women were useful for the war. They were either nurses or cooks for the soldiers.
