Building Brooklyn: Women on the Waterfront

That number ballooned to 7,000 at the height of the war, but afterward—women workers were gone as rapidly as they appeared. We use oral histories from women who worked at the yard during the war, and an interview with author Jennifer Egan, who used the collection as research for her award-winning novel, Manhattan Beach.
