Latinas and World War II

Latina women, or women of Latin-American descent, contributed much to the U.S. war effort during World War II. This period gave Latina women the opportunity to express their own agency and examine their roles as women and Latinas in the context of American society. Through their support of U.S. war efforts both overseas and on the homefront, these women began to question their societal status and call for changes within their culture and country.
