Some women during WWII went to work for the military or in factories--but more women stayed home. Housewives living in Edmond, Oklahoma made sacrifices and conformed to the government's requests in order to help soldiers overseas. By spending wisely, saving everything, and keeping the country's spirits up during bleak times, the housewives on the homefront helped win the war. -From the Edmond Historical Society's website
