Women’s Impact in the Forces

Transcript
I think it got that the men so that they accepted the women and I think it made a lot of people, you know “heads up here” realize the women could do things after all. We weren’t just an object to sit home and wash dishes and cook all the time, that they realized that women could serve a very good role in life. I suppose there were still people out there, a few of them that didn’t think much of women that joined the forces.
