Navy women codebreakers who helped Allied forces win WWII

Recommended Posts



Great article! There is so much that women did during the war that is not known to so many. I love the following from the article:


Parsons said people assumed she was working as a glorified secretary. Not being able to tell them otherwise was difficult. "They'd say 'What do you do?' and I'd say 'Well I have a desk job.' And they'd say 'Well that's what we thought women would get." And that was hard because I couldn't talk about it. " "The top bananas said that women couldn't keep a secret, and we showed them that we could."
