National service for women in the U.K. in WW2 . Childless women, whether single or married, were subject to national service between ages 20 and 30 unless already working in certain key occupations. In other words, they had to contribute to the war effort. This could anything from working in arma…ments factories to writing government propaganda (in the case of those with appropriate qualifications). To avoid misunderstanding, it should be pointed out that, although there were uniformed branches of the armed forces for women, they were NOT sent into action. ( Full Answer )

In Europe, married women's husbands had to go off to fight for their countries. As a result, women had to take the man's place on the farm or find a job. The woman was also the only one there was to look after their children if they had any.
Answer . After the loss of family, perhaps sons and husbands, to the war,obviously there was a great amount of depression and sadness. Women also took on many male roles during WW2. Such as farming, working in large factorys and in some cases building, to restore damage done by air-raids. Not on…ly were the women full time workers they were also full time mothers to any younger children they may have. I think the real question is, 'how did women cope during the war?'. Alot of restrictions were also given during that time, which effected anyone at home. Small ammounts of food and materials were given to families monthly. There were not enough people to work the factories, so all clothing was mostly hand-made. This was yet another job took on by females.. Hope this has helped a little :) ( Full Answer )
After the end of WWII, GEN Douglas MacArthur was assigned the mission of over seeing the government of Japan, much like a military governor. One of the new laws that the "military governor" made, was that Japanese women were to be given the same status as American women in the United States.
Women, besides being placed in more skilled jobs than they were used to in non-war times (and even World War I when they participated as typists, secretaries and even overseas functions like nurses): as mechanics, engeneers, reseachers, eletricians. In 1942 the Women's Army Corps was created, and w…omen were sent overseas to combatant fields (though they would not be involved in direct fighting, they served in functions like being pilots). The Navy and Coast Guard also had all-women troops, as did the British Army. In 1940 the Select Service Act was passed and African-Americas could enlist in all branches of the Armed Forces, composing finally 11% of the manpower, regardless of the discrimination that still was directed to them. Thousands of Hispanics also fought on the war, Mexican and Puerto Ricans mainly. At least 33,000 Japanese-americans participated in the war, too. They had the most decorated unit in US history, when after 1943 they won the right to enlist (discrimination as a result of the Pearl Harbor offence kept them from being able to volunteer before).

She means not just that woman got the degrees when the men were away, but that the absence of men gave them the freedom to find their voices. Philosophy is too often an argumentative discipline, and at student level, and perhaps beyond men too often patronize or upstage women. It is impossible to tell how many careers have been blighted as a result.\n. \nMary Midgley is one of the UK's leading moral philosophers and critic of Reductionism in science. She is 86 years old.

With all of the men fighting the war, women basically took over the workforce during World War 2.
Yes, although women were not allowed to fight. But there were women serving as military nurses, and women pilots who ferried supplies to the troops. Women also were members of auxiliary forces like the WACS (Women's Army Corps), performing clerical and support functions so that the men could be free…d up to go into combat. Further, women distinguished themselves by taking over many jobs previously held by men-- women worked on assembly lines making cars, building airplanes, assembling parachutes, and doing other essential work to help the war effort-- a character called "Rosie the Riveter" was based on a real woman who worked in a factory that made the military planes, and she really did apply the rivets.

One of the main events was the Holocaust, in which over 6.2 million Jews were killed and tortured in the Nazis' concentration camps. 'Experiments' (that I won't go into, but be sure that is was terrible) were preformed on them, and only a fraction survived. Another problem was the bombing of Hiros…hima and Nagasaki, by order of Harry S. Truman, President. He ordered the nuclear bombs Little Boy to be dropped on Hiroshima, and Fat Man to be dropped on Nagasaki. It still haunts the history of japan. The bombings, which were the first actual use of nuclear weapons in history, were developed in the Manhattan Project, which tested the weapons. Still, the trenches and cliff-bunkers and tank-busters are standing on the beaches of Normandy, France from the invasion of D-Day. D-Day got it's name from the files on it, which didn't exactly specify the date. ( Full Answer )

During the war women certainly had the opportunity to work in aresa that they had little access to in peace time. They reached a level of independence that was previously was unheard of. They were victims of prejudice to begin with as many believed that women would not be capable of the work. But if… you look at the Land Army for example eventually they did become appreciated and possibly because they had some thing to prove they became harder workers than their male colleagues. But this independence does appear to be temporary. Just think of the 1950s housewife! She was the angel of the home. Research into why women returned to domestic life with out a fight would be well worth reading. ( Full Answer )
