Summary Domestic. Shop Girl. Waitress. Cook...Those were the jobs for women in the 1930s-when they could get work. Suddenly the U.S. entry into World War II created an unprecidented demand for new workers. Notions of what was proper work for women to "Do The Job He Left Behind." "Rosie The Riveter was born--the symbol of working women during World War II. After whirlwind training, women found themselves doing doing "men's work" and they did it so well that production levels rose despite the military call-up of millions of male workers. They discovered a new sense of pride and dignity in their work. Their earnings leapt upward. Many joined unions and found substantial new benefits from labor representation. And for the first time in history, black women gained entry into major industrial plants.
