About The Land Girls: In a Man’s World, 1939-1946:

Drawing on interviews with 220 women who served as “land girls” during World War II, Bardsley (a Ph.D. candidate) relates an under-documented chapter in New Zealand’s war experience. Like their Rosie the Riveter sisters, these Women’s Land Service recruits gained independence, little recognition, and discontent about giving up their farm jobs when the soldiers came home. Well-illustrated with recruiting posters and women engaged in farm labour.
