Women have been an integral force and helpmate for mankind throughout existence. They have long searched for their place in society. Women have known that the role society has handed them is not necessarily the only role that they are destined to play. At the beginning of the Civil War, many American women had a fragile demeanor, but it would not take long before they showed their courageous side as they took a stand for their country. By the beginning of the Second World War, women had learned that they were more than capable of helping protect the United States by working a man’s job while balancing their family and personal life. Women have been ready to do what needs to be done when they have been faced with the need to help the United States during war.
