The presentation starts with life in 1939 and what was happening in the
world, and then moves forward with the story of WWII and how women changed
perspectives and broke down myths one by one. It closes with President Kennedy hosting his President's
Commission on the Status of Women.
This welcoming presentation will feature a large
collection of WWII posters with 1940's wartime music. It will keep you interested and helps continue

passed away last year.
