Women, Aviation and WWII

Wednesday, June 1, 2022

While thousands of men were fighting for their country, the people back home were engaged in an extensive war effort of their own. Never cannot forget the women who stepped up to meet the demands of the home front. 

Women were essential to the American war effort. They worked in defense industries, joined the military and completed countless other tasks to move the Allies closer to victory. In many cases, they made these contributions while meeting family obligations at home.  

This exhibit features the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASPs), Rosie the Riveter and famous aviatrix Jackie Cochran.
