Item Description: Canadian Department of National Defence, Canada, 2001. glossy Paperback. Book Condition: Excellent. 552 pgs., glossary, several b/w photos; In 1945, when the war ended, about 750, 000 women were employed in Canadian war industry and 760, 000 more worked on Canadian farms. These women were carefully counted by the federal government because war industry and farming were reserved occupations (jo bs that would keep men out of the armed forces), and each woman working in a reserved occupation meant another man available for military service. Less carefully enumerated, but even more essential to Canada's economic survival, were the 400, 000 women wh o worked in regular civilian jobs, With so many men in the armed forces or working in war industries that produced nothing for domestic consumption, Canada ran on women's labour. Even before war was declared, women joined social service groups such as the Young Women's Christian Association (YWCA), the Women's Institute (WI), the Imperial Order of Daughters of the Empire (IODE) and the Canadian Red Cross Society. Others formed pa ramilitary "auxiliary" groups to work, often without pay, in transport, clerical support, health care and community service specifically to pro-mote and assist the war effort. Members of auxiliary groups generally assumed military-style ranks and titles, wore military-style uniforms, studied first aid and practiced foot drill; some even learned to shoot. Women were strongly attracted to service in the armed forces, not only to serve their King and country, but also because the war was the great experience of their generation. As soon as the armed forces showed any interest in recruiting women, they eager ly joined the Royal Canadian Air Force - Women's Division (RCAF WD) formed on July 2, 1941, as the Canadian Women's Auxiliary Air Force, the Canadian Women's Army Corps (CWAC) formed on August 13, 1941, and the Women's Royal Canadian Naval Service (WRCNS ) formed in July 1942.
