She found many books written by men on the subject of women, all of them totally useless to her task at hand. She left discouraged, feeling an outsider in the men's world of knowledge and scholarship.
The war affected the entire population, yet in many different ways. Millions enlisted or were inducted into the armed forces. Unprecedented numbers of Americans saw combat in places far from home. Hundreds of thousands of soldiers were killed or wounded in combat, while, on the home front, millions more worked in defense industries.
World War II required the unification and mobilization of Americans as never before. In the years preceding the war, significant groups of Americans — African Americans, Japanese Americans, women, the poor — experienced discrimination because of their race, nationality, gender, or economic status.
