From HuffPost: 'She's A WOW' Exhibition At Pritzker Military Library Celebrates Women In Uniform
While the men in uniform may have been the stars of the Allied
victory in World War II, their female compatriots deserve some credit
for their role, too.
This fall, the Pritzker Military Library in Chicago,
a repository of more than 65,000 materials related to chronicling the
experiences of America's Citizen Soldiers, turns the focus to the women
in uniform who fought for America in the second world war.
Located in the historic Monroe Building between Millennium Park and
the Art Institute in the Loop, the Pritzker Military Library will debut a
new exhibit this week dedicated to the women of the war called "She's a
WOW: Women’s Service Organizations in World War II."
Curated by librarians and collections staff, the exhibition will run
from Sept. 13, 2012 through April 2013, and includes prints, recruiting
posters, photos and other media sharing the stories of women who served
their country. Paired with the vintage materials are first-person
accounts, including an audio tour featuring the voices of the women
themselves, telling their own stories.
“Exploring and making public the duties and responsibilities women
took on during the war is important on two fronts,” Kenneth Clarke,
Pritzker Military Library President and CEO, said in a release
announcing the exhibition. “It’s a crucial part of the history of the
war that needs to be told.”
