Meet with a historian

When I first met with Dr. McClurken to discuss my topic, he informed me that it may be too broad and that I should probably focus it down some more. The problem was, what did I want to narrow it down to? There are so many intersting things I could discuss in my paper about women involved in World War II, including women in the workforce, the impact on homelife, propaganda that was used, the way they were treated when the war was over, or the women pilots that served in the military.  When doing my initial research, I was shocked when I saw how many women pilots there were in the early 1940’s and how many women were involved with the military. I think the direction I need to shift and focus more on for my research paper is towards propaganda techniques that were used during the war that catered toward women and how effective their use was both before and after the war.
