During the World War 2 the lives of thousands of americans changed.When the war started food and gas had to be carefully rationed.Windows had to be covered with blackouts and lights on billboards and headlights had to be painted halfway down with black paint.Since many men had to go to war not many were left to do all the jobs so the women had to fill in their spots.The women worked as clerks,firefighters,police,even as riveters.The whole country was so happy when the war was over that strangers ran out into the streets kissing and hugging anyone on the streets.But not everything went back to normal women still worked at mens' jobs' men started doing some womens' jobs' but pretty much things went back to normal.
