Equal pay as men. Designer clothes. And (eventually) respect.

It’s the story about the Greatest Generation that you haven’t heard

Homefront Heroines: The WAVES of World War II introduces a group of quirky, independent and determined women who went where no women had gone before: into the Navy as WAVES, or Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service. Through a documentary film (six years in the making), this website, a blog and location-based storytelling, this interactive documentary project will reveal a hidden history about a generation who changed the course of American life.
