Description
A tribute to the women of Canada for their part in the World War II effort. After the disastrous events of June 1940, The Canadian Women's Army Corps and homemakers alike were called upon to do their part in the war effort. From careful budgeting in the home to services rendered overseas, women's work was intergral to the well-being of all.
