what options did women defense workers have at the wars end
At the end of World War II, many women stayed in the work force, while others went back to being fulltime mothers and wives. Some also worked to help support their husbands while they attended college on the G.I. Bill.
One other idea...women working in all sorts of occupations during WW2 was the impetus for what became the Women's Movement. Society found that women could do more than be mothers, teachers or secretaries. After that time, more women went to college; more women took jobs in industry.
