She was born in the year 1920 and her real name is Rose Will Monroe. She worked in a factory, willow run aircraft. All through her life she had a growing dream to one day to pilot a plane herself. Rose through her life became the most recognized woman icon in that era. What she did and was trying to do was encourage woman to work in factories to support the war effort. By doing that, she inspired a social movement that increased the number of working woman in America. This number increased by 57% which is over 20 million woman in 1944.
8: 8. How did the WWII end the Great Depression? Every one has their own views on this topic, some believe that the war only made the depression worse and others do think that it ended the depression. I think when the government entered the WWII it was extremely hard, because the world was in a depression and everything was suffering so to start a war which coasts thousands of dollars was a tough choice but in the end we see that it did help, because the depression did not last forever there was an end to the hurt and suffering that each and every person was going through. When you think about what there other options were, when they were in the moment of the depression there aren't very many you can come up with. So for them at the time war was the only option that they thought would actually have an outcome and maybe do some good. And it did, because things did get better. How this happened was during the war the U.S was winning and they brought in things that they could make money off of. which made profit which produced more money for the government to get back on their feet.
