Here are some questions to help stimulate conversations about the book and women during WWII:
1. What was your impression of American women's
roles in WWII before you read the book?
2. How did that impression
change after you read the book?
3. If you were alive during that time, did the
book ring true for you?
4. Do you know what your mother or grandmother
did during WWII?
5. How do you think WWII
affected you, your mother, and grandmother, in terms
of women's role in American society afterwards?
6. How were men affected
by the changes in women's place in American society
during WWII? For instance, women entered the workforce
and the military like never before. What adjustments
did men have to make to those changes?
7. How is women's experience of war different
from men's, before, during and since WWII?
8. Who were your favorite women in the
book? Who did you find most inspiring?
9. Were there women in the
book you did not like?
10. In what ways do you
think the women of the greatest generation have not
gotten proper credit for their roles in WWII?
11. Are there any women
in your life who you could ask about their lives during
WWII, or who you could thank for what they did for our
country during WWII?
