First words
Women by themselves cannot win this war. But quite certainly it cannot be won without them.
Chapter 1
There are more than thirteen million women and girls who go to work every day in the United States. Many of them are already employed in war industries and many more soon will be. A recent survey showed that of 1,894 different occupations in 21 key defense industries, there are only 331 jobs found to be definitely unsuitable for women.
