It also illuminates how the war changed the lives of women in more traditional home front roles. All women had to cope with rationing of basic household goods, and most women volunteered in war-related programs. Other entries discuss institutional change, as the war affected every aspect of life, including as schools, hospitals, and even religion." "American Women during World War II provides a handy one-volume collection of information and images suitable for any public or professional library."--Jacket.
