War Effort

Today we feature a photograph of a Woman Worker in the War Effort in World War II. During the war, a large fraction of the United States workforce was occupied in fighting the war. At the same time, there was a huge demand for workers to build the planes, tanks, and other equipment needed to fight the war. In order to fill the jobs, many women entered the workforce in jobs previously reserved for men. This picture shows a woman working on the B-24 Liberator bomber.
The first Liberator bomber rolled off the Willow Run production line on this day, November 28, in the year 1942. Today we tip our hats to all the women stepped forward to new and difficult jobs to help the Allies win the war.
