dc.description.abstract This thesis explores the emotional experiences of Canadian servicewomen during the Second World War and their reactions to service life. Almost two years after entering the war, the Canadian government concluded that enlisting women in the military freed up more men to fight while allowing the services to maintain regular operations. As women moved into these traditionally male roles, the government and military tired to direct them in how they should act and feel while in service. This was demonstrated in propaganda and popular media, such as newspapers, that depicted the lives of servicewomen. In response, this thesis considers how servicewomen fit or broke with these emotional standards set out for them while in the context of trying to maintain morale. en_US
