It is widely believed by most historians, that American Women were what swung things in our favor during world war 2, while the men were fighting. Women were working hard here at home, building the weapons we needed in order to out gun our enemies, a lot of women lost their lives to, it was a very dangerous job and, a lot exploded all it took was a spark, you could die by just combing your hair, that's why most women were bandana's over their hair while working, my Great Grandma did this during world war 2. I remember her telling the stories all the time.

There were a lot of women who contributed significantly to the war effort and in many countries. Your great grandma would have had some wonderful stories I'm sure.

British women played their part too - they worked in the factories, and also on the land producing food.

I agree. Women played important role in the a World War 2. We also had Filipino women who became heroes here. They help fed the soldiers during the war and they treated the wounded ones.

I've heard how women worked in the factories during WWII, but I hadn't heard about the dangers of it.

My mother did welding at the shipyard. She used to joke that she hoped the ships she worked on actually stayed together at sea.
