Hello all, My main area of interest is women working in munitions factories throughout the Second World War. I've just finished reading the fantastic ‘Bomb Girls’ by Jacky Hyams – a book entirely about women working in munitions factories, with many in-depth, sensitive interviews with former bomb girls, chronicling their jobs and their daily lives throughout the war - I found the book incredibly informative. For example, I had no idea that the factories were open 24/7, or that there were no air-raid shelters for women who were on shift. I’d really like to hear any stories/opinions that anyone has about this particular topic. Do you believe that it was right that women were not given credit for their work? Should such dangerous factories have been running 24/7? If anyone would like to read/review ‘Bomb Girls’, please do get in touch. Thank you.
