Women in Defense is an interesting documentary short about them during World War II
With commentary written by First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt as narrated by Katharine Hepburn, Women in Defense takes us through various scenes of women during World War II sewing parachutes in silk for the military men, testing certain chemicals on mice for certain health measures, and putting bullets and other munitions in detailed shape for the readiness of battle. We also see women giving out blood for any match-up with the various soldiers who may be fatally wounded in the war. Presented in 10 minutes with stirring music to guide us through the sacrifices of these ladies in contributing to the war effort, Women in Defense is essential viewing for anyone wondering what it was like for working women in the homefront during this period.
