Paper Topic

I have not fully decided on my paper topic just yet, but I believe I am leaning more towards the impact of World War II on American women’s culture (bringing women into the workforce) or the idea of World War II bringing the U.S. out of the Great Depression. I have a few other ideas, but I think I am leaning more towards the first one I have listed. I think it had a huge impact and I definitely think it is something important enought to write about.

These are excellent primary sources I found for my initial topic. These websites provide first-hand accounts and pictures of women in the workforce during World War II- working in the shipyards, factories, textile industries, etc.
