Women Worked as Mechanics, Factory Workers and Supply Pilots

Unfortunately, women were expected to leave these positions when men returned from World War II. The women who continued to enter the workforce during and after the war, found they were not paid as much as men in the same positions. Women also found themselves passed up for promotions and treated unequally. The next step for the women's rights movement would be to attain equal treatment both in the workplace and society.
