    Hi Kitty,

    I'm very happy to make a sub-forum for this. If you don't mind I'll shoot you an email and we can hammer out details.

    I also have a bulletin from the Women's Bureau of the United States Department of Labor (#205) titled "Negro Women War Workers".

    I'll put links to both in the new sub.

    If your interest is a bit more general than just the US I think you will enjoy some of the stories in the link on this thread:
    War Stories Galore on This Website
    Elinor has done a lot of good work on that site with stories based on interviews of mostly Canadian men and women who served.
