Many women were working in men's jobs ["Rosie the Riveter"] such as welding, construction, and factory jobs. The nation came together and rationed sugar, gas, oil-products, and even nylon. These items went toward the war effort. Women even rationed lipstick and the oil/grease in lipstick went to tanks and vehicles on the battle fields. People bought War Bonds to support the war.
