However, few stories of the role of women have been shared. Today, Women’s Magazine has some of those stories, like that of Lena Jamison, a California woman who was recorded two days after the bombing. by John Lomax of the Library of Congress, in Dallas, TX. Other stories include that of Ruth Baird Shaw, as well as journalist Cornelia Fort, a Pearl Harbour survivor.
