    Its such a shame that these intelligent women did all this work during the war, but after the men came back it was as if they were second class citizens again. I wish there were more documentaries about this role women played in the war and in fact memorials as well recogizing their efforts.

    It might have had something to do with the fact that the men had been through absolute hell and at the very least deserved decent jobs.

    There's something unpleasant about "With careful Douglas training, women do accurate electrical assembly and installation work." As a man, I know I'd need careful training to do such work.
