Support the men who fight by donating old cookware now!
CANADIAN WOMEN ON THE HOME FRONT - WORLD WAR II By: Ashlea Mazerolle
Me too sweethearts.
We're still hungry!
Factories manufactured guns, ammunition, aircraft, ships and more, and women were seen in almost every factory working alongside the men. By the end of the war, women had proved to themselves and to the country that they could do any job a man could!
Women also did their part by donating old cookware and other household items to recycling scrap metal drives and encouraging others to do the same.
I can't believe this is finally happening!
Home life was challenging during the years of World War II. Women "rationed" as it was hard to obtain sugar, butter, eggs and other scarce food items that were needed to help feed the men fighting overseas.
Mothers and children worked side-by-side on the farm to ensure it survived, with responsibilities like planting, harvesting, caring for livestock, milking cows and managing the finances being added to women's normal farm chores.
How much longer mom?
By 1941, the Canadian Women's Army Troops was formed. Women replaced men in non-combat duty, and were finally able to serve Canada in uniform. THANK YOU TO ALL THE WOMEN OF WORLD WAR II.
