Veterans Women African Americans What did they gain in World War II? Veterans came home to a guaranteed education, job training, an accessible home purchase. The GI Bill of Rights says that Veterans will come home to a future instead of coming home to nothing When the men went overseas to fight, the women got the jobs of men. This helped to fight for equality and their rights. Since the African Americans helped in the war, they got more rights and more respect. Also, African Americans were in entertainment and music. What challenges did they face at the end of the war? A lot of Veterans came home with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Before the GI Bill of Rights, they faced unemployment since they didn’t get education they needed. Once the men came back for war, they wanted their jobs back. Over 2 million women lost their jobs. They faced inequality and lack of rights.
