18 Color Photos Of Female WWII Workers That Will Make You Proud(er) To Be A Woman

It's not that we need a reason to be proud of our womanhood, but when such a beautiful reminder comes along we can't help but share it. We stumbled upon this treasure trove of photos courtesy of imgur user alwaysupvoteducks, a series of color photos chronicling the female workers of the World War II era. And, of course, we wanted to spread the magic.

The following photos feature a selection of ladies so badass they put Rosie the Riveter to shame. The images, likely snapped between 1939 and 1944 as part of the United States Farm Security Administration/Office of War Information, offer a richly saturated view of daily life held for American women during the war. Get lost in the metallic hues and vintage washes below and let us know your thoughts in the comments.
