    Seeking help on locating sources of female codebreakers in WWII

    Hadley Carr Newbie

      I was wondering where I might locate sources that demonstrate the sexism, leisure, and racial discrimination surrounding female codebreakers in WWII.

       

      Specifically for sexism, reports where men were surprised by the efficiency of women or doubted their capabilities. For sources regarding leisure, images of codebreakers relaxing or demonstrating what the women did in their past time. For issues of racial discrimination, I was wondering where I could access information about the Army's African American codebreaking unit at Arlington Hall made up of women such as Annie Briggs and Ethel Just.
