This booklet was published at the end of the Second World War as an attempt to gather and process statistics and current information regarding the employment numbers and overall war effort contributions being made by women of color. Munition plants, steel mill, foundries, shipyards, and railroads - the war brought many new opportunities to Black women to enter and contribute to the workforce. The author urges the government to not underestimate or look past the significant contributions made by Black women to the U.S. war effort during this time.
