    Those WAACS were fantastic women. They had been kept out of the workforce for ever and left dependent on their husbands and fathers for everything, then thrown willy nilly into war work because the nation changed its mind. From all reports, the women handled themselves brilliantly.

    The only problem seemed to be going back to domestic drudgery, once the war was over. It must have seemed as if their achievements during the war counted for nothing.

    My grandmother was allowed to work during a crisis (not WW1 but the Depression) and counted it amongst her happiest days ever.
