Description
During World War II, departing soldiers created many new job opportunities for women on the home front. As Kathleen Endres shows, women had already been employed at Akron, Ohio's rubber factories for decades, often doing work requiring a high degree of manual dexterity. This history—which is illustrated with dozens of archival photographs and propaganda posters—profiles these intrepid ladies, highlighting an often-unsung aspect of the war effort.
