The Women Of Douglas Aircraft Company, 1942

1940s | November 12, 2016

In 1942, during World War II, thousands of women across the U.S. took on manufacturing jobs. They worked as mechanics, engineers, and often as test pilots.

This collection of photos from the Douglas Aircraft Company in Long Beach, CA in October 1942 were part of a publicity campaign to recruit more women for similar jobs across the country.
