Women's Work in WWII Lecture at Putnam History Museum

Date: June 15, 2019
Please join PHM as we present "Women's Work in WWII: Millions of Working Women Break Down the Barriers of Gender Discrimination" with author John Cilio.

A world war fought over seventy years ago threatened the nation's sovereignty and significantly challenged American culture. Women were seldom equal to their male counterparts in the workplace. But America was about to change. This presentation reveals the chronological events that stirred the momentous growth of women entering the workforce overlaid with the harrowing military combat that caused the world to change.

This talk brings to life the contributions, adventures, toil and teamwork experienced by women as they confronted the challenges of gender bias and workplace discrimination. Their war time experiences emboldened them to press for gender equality after the war. Memories and accomplishments often fade away with the passing of the generation who lived them. Their story is essential to understanding the continued fight to persuade a nation to establish a more equitable, gender neutral America.

Admission is free for museum members and is $10 for the general public. To guarantee a spot, please register through this Eventbrite.
