North Carolina women made many important contributions to the war effort—without women the war could not have been won. Women became emancipated by taking the skilled jobs of men off to war—they were riveters, flew planes, made steel, served as nurses, and produced munitions. At the same time, they volunteered for the Red Cross and Travelers Aid; made blankets, bought war bonds, worked at the USO Club, and raised a family. Some joined the military in the WACS, WAVES, SPARS, and WASPS.
