Hi Sarah, They basically did everything! Any job that was male-dominated, was taken over by women as more and more of the male population was drafted into the war. They worked as air raid wardens, drove buses, built ships, trucks, tanks, flew planes,with even Queen Elizabeth II working as an ambulance driver and mechanic during the war. They also had crucial jobs on the homefront, farming either on large lands or even just in allotments, recycling, managing rations, being radio operators, pharmacists, bankers, bookkeepers. At first, only single women, aged 20-30 were called up, but by mid-1943, almost 90 percent of single women and 80 percent of married women were working in factories, on the land, or in the armed forces. It was a great step in the feminist movement with Rosie The Riveter becoming an iconic symbol of women working and being everything that, up until that point, men said they couldn't.
