World War II (WWII) was examined to depict its importance on the transformation of American women’s gender roles during the mid-twentieth century. The findings were consistent that WWII had a large impact on women during this time. Women’s gender roles were altered; they were able to pursue various work opportunities, earn higher wages, alter their appearances, and establish a sense of self. World War II is arguably one of the leading causes for American women’s liberation on the home front.
