During the second World War, women really stepped up to the plate and did their part in the war effort. Not only did they step up to the plate, it was actually encouraged! More women served as pilots and nurses on the war front. Women at home supported the war by doing the jobs the men did like joining the Women's Land Army of America. Here are several vintage photos from the 1940s of women in war. Happy Memorial Day loves!

This last photo is a photo of women in the Woman's Land Army of America with their harvested crops.  I really love this photo for some reason, I think it is because I love the idea of women (or people in general) coming together to support a bigger cause.

Here are more great links if you're interested in learning more about women in the war effort back in the 1940s!

  1. Those are absolutely lovely! I love how effortless the women in the war depicted glamour even in the most mundane of situations. Those vintage pictures, in their classical sepia tones, tell a story of optimism and hope in a war that seems grim and cruel. Thank you for sharing those amazing pictures! Cheers!
