This paper examines the roles of Canadian women on the home front and overseas during World War II, and analyzes why Canadian women returned to their traditional gender roles after the war was won. The author notes that because millions of Canadian women had not served, they and millions of Canadian men whose ideas of gender roles had never changed, exerted significant pressure to conform on former servicewomen, due to society's rigid expectations that the proper place for Canadian women was in the home.
