Drawing on propaganda, advertising, government records, and hundreds of letters and other accounts written by women in the 1940s, this examines how women's bodies and minds became 'battlegrounds' in the US fight for victory in World War II. Using perspectives of cultural studies and feminist theory, it offers a broad look at how women on the American home front grappled with a political culture that used their bodies in service of the war effort.
