'There is hardly any kind of work left where [women] have not succeeded in taking the place of men', explains this pamphlet from the Second World War. First published in 1942, Eve in Overalls highlights the huge contribution made by women to the war eff ort. From air-raid wardens, signallers, electricians and drivers, to roles in the Navy, Air Force and territorial services, it describes how women entered the workplace as never before. At moments shocking, Eve in Overalls reflects a time when women in the workplace were viewed with curiosity and fascination, and the style and language can seem amusing to readerstoday. It provides a fascinating and eye-opening insight into the dedicated and hardworking women who helped Britain win the war.
