Workplace[ edit ] When Britain went to war, as before in World War Ipreviously forbidden job opportunities opened up for women.
Women were called into the factories to create the weapons that were used on the battlefield. As Carruthers put it, the housewife has become a heroine in the defeat of Hitler.
During the Second World War, society had specific ideals for the jobs in which both women and men participated.
Increasing numbers of women were forced into industry jobs between Women were the target audience in the various forms of propaganda because they were paid substantially less than men. Even if women were replacing jobs with the same skill level as a man, they were still paid significantly less due to their gender.
In the engineering industry alone, the number of skilled and semi-skilled female workers increased from 75 per cent to 85 per cent from The contribution by civilian men and women to the British war effort was acknowledged with the use of the words " home front " to describe the battles that were being fought on a domestic level with rationing, recycling, and war work, such as in munitions factories and farms and men were thus released into the military.
Women were also recruited to work on the canals, transporting coal and munitions by barge across the UK via the inland waterways. These became known as the "Idle Women", initially an insult derived from the initials IW, standing for Inland Waterways, which they wore on their badges, but the term was soon adopted by the women themselves.
Auxiliary services such as the Air Transport Auxiliary also recruited women. These jobs ranged from traditionally feminine roles like cook, clerk and telephonist to more traditionally masculine duties like mechanic, armourersearchlight  and anti-aircraft instrument operator.

WRNS was the only service that offered an immobile branch which allowed women to live in their homes and work in the local naval establishment.
ATS was the largest of the three organizations and was least favoured among women because it accepted those who were unable to get into the other forces.
Women went through the same military training, lived in the same conditions and did almost the same jobs as men, with the exception of not being able to participate in front-line combat. This important distinction meant that women did not tend to be nominated for medals of valour or bravery, because they were only awarded for "active operations against enemy in the field", which women could not take part in.
They wore the same rank insignia as their male counterparts. Many members of the ATS were respected by the units they were attached to despite their different insignia.
The women in the service were also under the authority of the female officers of the ATS, instead of the male officers under whom they served directly. This meant any disciplinary action was entirely in the hands of the ATS, removing male influence from the process.
Many of the servicewomen came from restricted backgrounds; therefore they found the army liberating. The overwhelming reason for joining the army, though, was patriotism.
Despite the overwhelming response to the call for female volunteers, some women refused to join the forces; many were unwilling to give up the civilian job they had, and others had male counterparts that were unwilling to let them go.
For example, married women were exempt from any obligation to serve unless they chose to do so, and those who were called could opt to serve in civil defense the home front.
