Join us as John Cilio talks about Women's Work in WWII, which he also wrote a book about!
The author adeptly transports the reader back to the era when men went off to war and the majority of women remained behind to care for families and fill the enormous gaps left vacant by the soldiers. From the talks very start you will hear the stories of amazing everyday working and service women of WWII that changed America forever. They started with the mission to help their country and their friends and relatives in the war. They ended up proving their competence in thousands of roles previously performed by men only. Women enlisted in every branch of service available to them and served around the globe bravely and proudly. The text and photos document the chain of circumstances that propelled the nation to realize that women can be an overtly sustaining force within our society.
