Conspiracy of Silence’: The Containment of Military Women in World War II Training and Recruitment Films

Associate Professor Anna Froula’s chapter “‘Conspiracy of Silence’: The Containment of Military Women in World War II Training and Recruitment Films” appeared in Wiley-Blackwell’s A Companion to the War Film.

The chapter is a feminist media history project that examines newsreel footage of the “Fly Girls” of World War II—the Women Air Service Pilots (WASPs) who flew every kind of military aircraft during the war yet did not qualify for veterans benefits or achieve full recognition until 2010.
