During the Second World War, nearly seven million American women took jobs in factories. Another three million volunteered for the Red Cross. And over 200,000 served in non-combatant roles in the military. Similarly, in Great Britain and countries including Australia, Canada, and the Soviet Union, thousands of women civilians worked on the home front in roles usually reserved for men to help combat labor shortages. Axis powers, too, like Germany and Japan, mobilized a vast female army to work in industry and on the land. Indeed, women were instrumental in the war effort during one of the darkest chapters in history.
