The three out of these eight women who came to the front and in that Library of Congress Exhibition on Women in World War 2, each one did different things what were so common to each one.

She took thousands of pictures of nurses, front-line soldiers, WACs, African-American airmen, and orphaned children. Therese Bonney a photographer who took picture of images of homeless children and adults on the back roads of Europe touched millions of viewers in the United Stated and abroad. Not content with publishing solely in mass-circulation newspapers and magazines, Bonney sought other opportunities to present her work. Janet Flanner a master of the printed word, Flanner was less in her element when she crossed the line into broadcast journalism. The need to pursue stories aggressively to justify precious airtime was unsettling to a writer accustomed to mulling over the "big picture." The ten-minute weekly broadcasts from locations throughout Europe filled Flanner with such anxiety that she relinquished her radio assignment with relief at the end of the war. All these women stood out into the war to overcome the truth and reality of the war.
