1 001404918 Paper #5: Research Paper EN 1123-05 Professor McCormack 28 November 2011 Non-traditional Jobs for Women During World War II In the late 1930s, before World War II began women’s roles in the work force were extremely different from what they are now. Women were not taken serious as workers, and men and women never worked in the same jobs. As the war started changes were being made so that as men were leaving to fight jobs that needed to get done would be fulfilled. The women of this time changed a lot of people’s thoughts of women. Women’s roles and reputation changed dramatically during the time of World War II, and this changed people’s view on women forever. Prior to the Second World War beginning women were not given much respect in society. Some had jobs but they were not the same jobs that men had. Women weren’t seen as important parts of society and weren’t given any important responsibilities. American Generations says that, they were mostly given the job of housewives; they would stay home and take care of the home and children all day ( 309). And Barrow also said, then they would sometimes work as nurses or domestic servants (1). It was not considered acceptable at that time for men and women to work at the same jobs. But when the war began all of roles would begin to change.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
