They were also doing jobs such as welding, riveting and engine repair. During World War II, over 6 million women took wartime jobs in factories or farms ("Women in World War II”). They were helping meet the wartime production for planes, tanks, ships, and weapons. Without the women working, the United States would not have been able to keep up with the wartime production of weapons. Some women worked so long in the factories that they had to move closer to the factory.
How Women Impacted WWII-Vishnu Patel Many have said that Canadian women’s contribution in WWII did lead to an allied victory. Women played a huge role and were very important in WWII. Canadian Women took part in WWII by joining the armed forces or they stayed home to raise families, crops for food and to fill the jobs that the men have left. Women weren’t allowed fighting in battle but they did many other things as well in war. After the war many women continued their career in the military force.
World War I affected many people during its time of war. WWI was known as the war that ended without any country knowing why it started in the first place. From the mid 1914 to late 1918, the lives of women and men changed for the better. The war impacted the men who had to leave their job to support the battle and the women who kept up with the jobs in order to keep the war running. The women went from running the house to running the factory.
Denesia Rollins Mr. McKinney History 134-015 12 March 2012 Analysis Paper #3 The Great Depression and World War II have changed the United States by the Changing Roles for Women. With American men enlisting in the war effort, the work force quickly diminished. Who would "man" the assembly lines in the factories to produce the needed items for the current war? The War marked and important watershed in the women status. With most of the men going into military service, the demand for labor struck up old prejudices about sex roles in the workplace, and the military.
Meaning since most men had gone to war, nobody else but women were able to fill men's daily roles. This was very important during world war II because the U.S. needed people to work on the unemployment jobs, especially the jobs relating to the war. This propaganda in my opinion is very convincing to women. Its convincing because women knew that if they didn't help, their husbands and family members might not return back.The picture displays the lady wearing a red rag on her head, the He is white and she is wearing a blue working uniform. I believe this is representing the U.S. and its demonstrating her pride for the country.
With the majority of the men gone that usually worked the factories and welding plants the United States needed to keep producing arms, ammunition, and other various equipment for the troops to continue they efforts. Thus women were encouraged by posters such as these showing that they too could help the country in this time of need. Needless to say, a great deal of women stepped up, were trained, and filled jobs that had, until this time, only been filled by men. Rosie the Riveter has made a mark on the American people and most of all the way in which the American woman is seen. Women were once only seen in homes cleaning and cooking and the era of Rosie was the first step in women’s rights.
They served as Red Cross Ambulance drivers in France and Belgium carrying wounded soldiers between trains from the western front to hospitals. Also women served as nurses in the “Canadian Army Medical Corps” also known as C.A.M.C.  Women didn’t only have a role out at the front, but also back home, in Canada. With so many men serving overseas, women had a new role to play in wartime Canada. They contributed by knitting warm clothing and making bandages for distribution by the military.
This was real life accounts of the women who went through it, which goes a long way with showing what these times were really like during this point in history. If this film was just a narrator telling the audience what occurred during these times, it would be just like many other history documentaries that are made. Showing what these wartime women went through with excitement, humor, and sadness all in one made it that much more great. Seeing these women overcome all that was put against them made you want to rally behind
How did some women try to force to government to employ more women? Emmeline Pankhurst, a leading suffragette, campaigned vigorously with one of her daughters, Christabel, to have women more involved in the war effort. The Pankhursts organised “The Right to Serve” procession in 1915 in which 60,000 women took part. The government was soon forced to change its mind and allow women into industry and other traditionally “male” jobs. It was the only way to keep up production.
Favor Mbamalu Mrs. Scott-Jackson How the Civil War Affected the Roles of Women 12 January 2018 How the Civil War Affected the Roles of White Women Before the Civil War began, southern wealthy white women were only known to cook, take care of children, and were limited to only performing household tasks. Working-class southern white women were known to work and also perform the same household and domestic tasks that wealthy white women did. Thankfully, the Civil War gave these women a big chance to prove themselves by performing serious tasks that only men were known to do. The Civil War was very important in changing the role of women because they took on ¨man roles¨ like their husbands’ jobs, being nurses, spies, and even being soldiers and fighting in the war! For well-off southern white women who stayed at home during the war, there was a lot of responsibility to take on.
