Women of World War II

When the United States entered World War II, women answered the call also. On May 14, 1942, the bill to establish the "Women's Army Corps" became law and the women of our great country stepped up and served in a variety of capacities supporting our troops, both oversees as well as on the home front. The Women's Army Corps (WAC), were the first women other than the nurses to serve within the ranks of the U.S. Army. Radio operators, service clubs and map analysts are just a sample of their endeavors in helping our nation. Women seized the opportunity to do whatever it took to help support our troops in the defense of our nation. Female employment industries grew by 462 percent from 1940 to 1944.
