During World War II, war production had to increase dramatically in a short amount of time. Women were needed because companies were signing large contracts with the government just as all the men were leaving for the service. The government launched a propaganda campaign to sell the importance of the war effort and to lure women into working. They promoted the fictional character of "Rosie the Riveter" as the ideal woman worker; loyal, efficient, patriotic, and pretty.
The Women's Army Corps (WAC), created in 1942 as the Women's Army Auxiliary Corps (WAAC), was the women's branch of the United States Army. General Douglas MacArthur called the WACs "my best soldiers", adding that they worked harder, complained less, and were better disciplined than men. Other branches of the U.S. military had similar women's units: the Navy WAVES, the Coast Guard SPARS and the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP).
