It’s a good day for feminism. Memorial to working women of WWII, depicting various coats and tools to represent all the jobs they took up while the men were away. And apparently, never left, as this presumed stay-at-home dad goes by pushing a baby stroller.
They get a monument for getting a fucking job? You’ve got to be shitting me.
These people deserve monuments…
Not these people:
I’m not saying that women did not contribute during the war. I’m not saying they didn’t live through some terrible times. I’m not saying it wasn’t dangerous and many died.
I’m saying there’s no comparison between making shoes and taking mortar fire.
Women didn’t just make shoes in WWII. They were helping build ships, aircrafts, vehicles and weapons. They were saving lives as nurses on the front lines — I dare you to tell a woman who worked as a fucking nurse, one of the hardest jobs during the war, that she doesn’t deserve a monument. Hundreds of thousands of women in the USA alone served in the armed forces, many of them losing their lives. Many women risked their lives working as spies in France and as underground radio operators in Nazi Germany. Women in Poland fought in the front lines during the resistance.
Maybe you should pick up a history book before you start saying that all women did during the war was work in a factory. If feminism was around back then, women would have been fighting in the front lines WITH men.
