Women firefighters douse flames during the Pearl Harbor attack.

Oh hay look women of colour were an integral part of the ‘cool’ part of history too, how about that.  They were like. Doing stuff that supposedly only heroic white dudes had done. That makes women valid participants in collective history now, right? Right? This is in high school history books now, right? Right? Huh?

What Glockgal said.

^^^^^

Interesting fact: if you watch the (horrific) film Pearl Harbor by (sexist, misogynist not to mention horrible) director Micheal Bay, he has this exact moment and women who look creepily like twins of the original in the film.
