Love these WWII 4×5 Kodachromes of women working

My mother sent me this link to these amazing photos of women helping to build bombers during WWII. Amazing to see these photos and consider that during this era women were still fighting for so many rights and treated totally differently. Heck, women wearing pants was still controversial. Yet, here they are in photos taking the places of husbands, brothers and friends in the assembly line. Doing some hard, technical, physical labor alongside men. I particularly love this photo of the man and woman riveting a cockpit together. Amazing! Thanks mommy!
