Summary
In this richly illustrated book Kathleen L. Endres examines the lives of women working in the rubber industry in World War II.Endres 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. And while the war did offer new opportunities to such groups as African Americans, women had been present in the rubber industry for decades, relegated to the lower paid "less skilled" jobs, which often required more manual dexterity than the jobs left for the "skilled" labor of men.Drawing upon heretofore unavailable archival materials and oral histories, Rosie the Rubber Worker offers readers a personal as well as scholarly account of the era and highlights the important role many women played in wartime production and how their work affected their lives during the war and after
