It did not, since there was no Feminist Movement in the 1940's. Only a Patriotic Movement. Actually, the ongoing feminist movement that began during WWI was greatly progressed during WWII. Most of the factories and labor jobs had to hire women (Rosie the Riveter) because the men were overseas. Daycare centers were created so that the women could work day-long jobs to support the war effort. While women already had suffrage by the start of WWII, they still had little respect from most of society, but their involvement in the factories to support the war brought them great recognition. However, once the war ended and the men returned home, the men felt threatened by their newly working, independent women, and forced them back into the stereotypical female role...hence the "Susie Homemaker" ideology of the 1950's.
