The Women's Army Auxiliary Corps: A Compromise to Overcome the Conflict of Women Serving in the Army
Permeswaran, Yashila
History Teacher, v42 n1 p95-111 Nov 2008
Though people now take the idea of women in the military for granted, in the 1940s it was a vigorously debated suggestion. Men protected their country; women stayed at home. Because of the conflict over whether women should serve in the army, Congress compromised by creating the Women's Army Auxiliary Corps (WAAC). This article describes the controversial history of the WAAC and its impact on the war effort. (Contains 64 notes.)
