Description
									These women were part of the vanguard of women during WWII who left their homes to take jobs that were once the exclusive domain of men. From 1942 to 1945, they helped build 747 Victory and Liberty ships at the Kaiser Shipyards in Richmond, CA, the largest shipyard in the world at that time. The 5 women in this film became electricians, pipe welders, certified journeyman welders, and draftswomen. By the end of the war, women made up 60% of Kaiser’s workforce. This film was made to honor the American women who helped to win a victory for their country as well as themselves. They helped give birth to a new, and very independent, American woman.
