Women's Land Army with Jenny Carleo*
Thursday, March 13, 2014 7:00 p.m.
Enjoy learning about local history at your library during National Women's History Month. The WLA recruited more than a million female workers, drawn from the ranks of high school and college students, beauticians, accountants, bank tellers, teachers, musicians, and many other occupations. By the end of 1944, the WLA had more than proved itself as an indispensible brigade of hard workers, and farmers were eager to enlist their services in the upcoming season. This Women’s Land Army of New Jersey National Women's History event is presented by Jenny Carleo, an Agricultural and Resource Management Agent, with the Cooperative Extension of Cape May County New Jersey.
