Women in WWII: 1938-1946
Saturday, October 20, 2018, 10am–12 Noon
Planes of Fame Air Museum
14998 Cal Aero Drive
The world was at war! America was sending its able-bodied men to fight on fronts across the globe. This created a massive manpower shortage in virtually all aspects of life.
With the demands for increased production and new war-related responsibilities added to the normal day-to-day civilian enterprises, the government had only one place to turn for help – America’s women.
From the initial ramp-up to war beginning in 1938 until war’s end, over 19 million women – of all races, creeds, and colors, answered the call. Some worked the factories, others assumed male-dominated civilian jobs, and still others joined the armed forces to serve a variety of duties. And for all women, those working and those maintaining a household, there were sacrifices to be made.
Planes of Fame Air Museum (Chino, CA) presents a special event on Saturday, October 20, 2018, entitled, “Women in World War II: 1938 - 1946.” This presentation is the final part of our three-part series of special events that examined unique aspects of the Second World War (the first was the “History of the Cal-Aero Flight Academy,” the second was our “Aircraft Production in Southern California”). Museum doors open at 9:00am. The Museum is open to the Public, General Admission is $15; for children 11 yrs and under, admission is $6. ages 4 and under are FREE! (excludes special events) FREE admission for Planes of Fame Members!
Female members of the Education Programs team will provide an up-close look at the many roles women played during World War II in helping to achieve victory. From their experiences in the workplace to their duties in the military and in particular, the aviation roles women played, this presentation will tell one of the “lost” chapters of the Second World War, a chapter that everyone – men, women, and young people – should learn and appreciate. Also joining us will be several United States Marine Corps Women Reserve (Aviation Women's Reserve Squadron 7) reenactors who will present the critical roles that women Marines played in the war. This year marks the 100th anniversary of Women in the Marines and the 75th anniversary of Women Marines participating in WWII.
