During WWII, women in the United States went to work in the defense industry because the men were off fighting the war. They left the kitchen for the aircraft assembly line. They did many of the jobs that men did - they riveted, packed munitions, learned to pilot and trained others to pilot. When he war was over, most went back to housewife, but many others did not. American women had learned to go to work.
