Call for Stories

Creston Museum News & Articles Leave a Comment

As I’m sure many of you are aware, the 75th Anniversary of VE Day is quickly approaching. We are taking on a new research project that looks at the impacts that World War II had on women back home.

Do you have any stories from your mother, grandmother, etc. who temporarily took on a “male” job while the men served overseas? Did she ever comment on transitioning back to her traditional gender role post-war? We’d love to hear what you have to share!

Please email Alyson at museumcurator@telus.net with any feedback or anecdotes you might have 🙂 thanks in advance!
