Rosie the Rubber Worker: Women Workers in Akron's Rubber Factories During World War II
Kathleen L. EndresISBN: 0873386671;
In this richly illustrated book, Endres examines the lives of women working in the rubber industry during WW II and points out that women were not new to the factories of Akron. Years before the war, many women had been balancing their home lives with working in these factories?relegated to the lower paid ?less skilled? jobs, which often required more manual dexterity than the jobs left for the ?skilled? labor or men. Drawing upon heretofore unavailable archival materials and oral histories, this book offers readers a personal and scholarly account of the era and highlights the important role women played in wartime production and how their work affected their lives during the war and after.
