WWII had a big impact on women as they were able to take on important jobs on the homefront in the absence of men, who were all fighting overseas.Women were able to take on jobs such as cooks, stewardesses,transport drivers, signallers,coders,writers and motor mechanics, just to name a few!The Women's royal Australian Airforce,Women's Australian naval force, and the Women's Australian army service were all formed in 1941.At home, during the war, women made up 40% of the work force in munitions and factories. Australian also received many refugees from other countries s many people were left homeless after the war.
