One of the many women who worked manufacturing the war machines that propelled Allied Forces to victory in World War II was Pauline Mauck. She was a real life “Rosie the Riveter” who worked in a Republic Aviation P-47 plant in Evansville, Iowa during WWII. She posed on the propeller of one of the planes coming out of the plant and it became an iconic image during the war.

World war 2 - the women still had it! They wore army clothes, had their hair curved perfectly, red lips and posed with the duck face! And how cute their hats are!

Joan Clarke Murray codebreaker at Bletchley Park during World War II, became deputy head of Hut 8 in 1944. Code breaking was almost exclusively done by men during the war. Clarke was paid less than the men and felt that she was prevented from progressing further because of her gender. She was a English cryptanalyst and numismatist. You have Joan and the women of Bletchley Park to thank for changing the History of the World AND the fact that you’re reading this on a computer!
