Women Code Breakers in WWII

Only recently have the contributions of women in breaking the Nazi and Japanese codes in WWII been documented and appreciated.  Their absence from the historical record is partly due to the long duration of secrecy about code breaking and partly because after the war, most went back to their “customary female roles”.  Come hear about the critical function that women fulfilled in winning the war at 10 am. on Dec. 3 at Thompson Park Activity Center, 1200 Stassen Center, West St. Paul.  Register by Monday, Nov. 26 by calling 651-403-8300. This session costs $5.
