AIU Women and World War II Most Iconic Images of WW II Discussion.
Women and World War II
One of the most iconic images of World War II is the famous “We Can Do It!” with the image details found here and the creation of Rosie the Riveter character detailed in this History channel presentation. Images like this represented an important moment in encouraging women to take up roles that had, prior to World War II, been solely for men.
To help with your Discussion Board post, you can read more about American women during World War II.
Also, explore images of the roles of women in World War II.
Imagine that your grandmother or great grandmother was one of the women who entered the workforce during World War II. Discuss what you think her service meant to her. Explain how you think she felt when, after World War II, she was expected to go back to being a housewife. How do you think this time in history affected women’s role in society in general and in the workplace today? If you actually have a female family member who served in World War II, please share her experiences!
