An important contemporary account of the mobilization of women for the war effort. Priestley's text places Hennell's photographs of employed women in context and discusses the critical influence of women on the country's wartime defence. Chapters look at women in the armed forces, civil defence, industry, the Land Army and W.V.S.. The final chapter discusses the influence of women's work in the future. Scarce with the dust jacket.
