Women At Work During World War II

In celebration of Women's History Month in March, Buzzfeed posted a collection of photographs of women who went to work at factories during World War II, while many men were sent overseas to fight. The pictures were taken for propaganda purposes, but the women in them were real workers. In this photo, Dorothy Cole is plating needles to be used for blood transfusions. Link
