women to work at the factories while the men were away.While men were gone, the women
made all the decisions in the household unlike anytime before World War II.Also, older men that
couldn't fight in the army were doing jobs that younger men usually did.Most women found
their new independence very different from anything else.Women liked it and when the men
came back, they didn't want to give it up so easy.This led to more women in the work force for
