    1)Women’s rights and gender roles underwent major change as a result of World War II. The life of women changed significantly during World War II. Similar to the majority of wars, many women discovered that their roles, possibilities, and responsibilities grew. To replace the men who had left for war, many more women entered the workforce. As a result, women began to hold positions that were previously reserved for men, which resulted in a substantial shift in gender roles1. In non-combat roles, women served in the military as well2.

    Women were particularly degraded as a result of the war because they were sexual assault victims1. However, women were also liberated by the war. It gave American women enormous chances to pursue positions that had never before been available to them.

    2)The reasons behind World War II are numerous and complicated. Heavy reparations were placed on Germany by the Treaty of Versailles, which put an end to World War I, and this instilled hatred and bitterness among Germans. Another significant factor that led to the war was the rise of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party in Germany. World War II was launched in 1939 with the invasion of Poland as a result of Hitler’s belligerent foreign policy. The effects of World War II were extensive. Millions of people died as a result of the war, which also left much of Asia and Europe in ruins. It also ushered in the Cold War and saw the rise of the Soviet Union and the United States as superpowers.
