Quote:
"[Women Are Warriors] reviews the many new and impressive civilian jobs performed by females in various Allied countries. At a British airplane factory, for example, the male narrator describes women 'adapt[ing] themselves easily' to tasks that include 'working on electrical circuits, soldering iron ... working with drills and lathes [and] rivetting sheet metal.'"
-- Jeffrey A. Keshen
