Women have been moving into the labor force for at least four years now. They drive buses and trucks, they fly planes, they “man” assembly lines. They do all the jobs that used to be “men’s work” before America joined the war and drafted the menfolk. And despite a superlative display of resourcefulness and stamina and courage, there’s still something a little comical about the reversal of roles. Forget Rosie the Riveter. Cartoonists can’t resist the idea of pretty young women in factory jobs.
