- Asian Americans and women struggled to find work after the war was over
- Both were not seen as a equal
- Both faced unequal treatment
- Japanese Americans were seen as threats to society and excluded from society
- Japanese Americans were sent to internment camps
- Women had a "double shift" to work for their boss and then their family
How were they treated? They faced unequal treatment after the war. They were kicked out of their jobs.
How did they respond to such treatment? They built their reputation by doing "men" work during the war.
Did they contribute anything to the cause of the war (WWII)? They helped manufacture supplies for the war and treated the wounded. They also took over men jobs.
What is your analysis? Opinion? Reaction to the action(s) taken by each community? Women contributed greatly during the war and I feel that was a big step in bringing more equal rights and opportunities for women.
How were they treated? Asian Americans were excluded from society and faced racism such as racist remarks on the streets, being not allowed in certain places, and being known for being a threat just because they are Japanese. (mostly Japanese)
How did they respond to such treatment? The Congress passed the Magnuson Act which repealed the Chinese Exclusion Act
Did they contribute anything to the cause of the was (WWII) ? 250,000 Filipino men joined the U.S. armed forces, as well as Chinese Americans. Chinese American women served by working on the home front
What is your analysis? Opinion? Reaction to the action(s) taken by each community? I think that the treatment of Asian Americans was unfair because just because the U.S. was at war with Japan Japanese Americans were saw as threats so they were stripped of all their possessions and forced to live in internment camps. Also Chinese and Filipino Americans faced racism and unequal treatment but not as much as the Japanese Americans
