The American Woman & World War II
325 N Michigan St
As hundreds-of-thousands of men were sent off to war in 1942, women were called to action. As they entered factories, enlisted in the military, and undertook positions that ensured the safety of both the American people and its economy, the country's perception of the American woman began to change. This exhibit will highlight the monumental roles that women played in World War II, on both the national and local front, through an array of photos, periodicals, and documents from the Toledo-Lucas County Public Library collection. Exhibit located in the Fact and Fiction Department at Main Library and viewable during library hours.
