      With these new policies, some have opposed women in combat, stating that women cannot handle the rigors of the battlefield. This added angle gave the exhibit context within American perspectives. In light of all this information, an exhibit educating the public about Soviet women during World War II seemed necessary. Soviet women played an important role in World War II (whose Eastern Front was known as the Great Patriotic War in the Soviet Union).While most toiled in industry, transport, agriculture and other civilian roles, working double shifts to free up enlisted men to fight and increase military production, a sizable number of women served in the army.

      As Krylova explains, the Soviet Union was not the only country to use women in combat in World War II. In Britain, for instance, many women served in anti-aircraft brigades, and the Soviets even looked to the British as a model. But in Britain, unlike in the Soviet Union, the women could only "help"; they were not permitted to fire guns. Yet, in the Soviet Union formed three regiments of women combat pilots who flew night combat missions and were so successful and deadly the Germans feared them, calling them "Nachthexen" - night witches.

The Soviet Union was the first nation to allow women pilots to fly combat missions. During World War II the Red Air Force formed three all-female units -- grouped into separate fighter, dive bomber, and night bomber regiments -- while also recruiting other women to fly with mostly male units/5.
