When WWII ended, millions of men in the military were eager to get back to jobs on the home front. Propagandists flipped the script. For many women, the new norm was the old norm: a woman’s place was in the home -- not in a plant, or behind the wheel of a truck, and not on a bandstand laying down the jive. Many women lost the jobs they had in all-girl bands during the war. But some of them stayed on, as this book shows. Contents: Part 1: “The Band Was on Fire”: Ada Leonard’s All-American Girl Orchestra; Part 2: “We Played All the Way up to New York!”: The Prairie View State College Co-Eds; Part 3: “What Are We Gonna Do for a Drummer?”: The International Sweethearts of Rhythm; Outro. Includes a CD of songs to swing to! Photos.
