    Jean Patterson speaks about her time in the Royal Air Force March 22, 2013, at RAF Mildenhall, England. Patterson entered the Royal Air Force as a tailor repairing parachutes. She was trained as an electrician, working in a male-dominated shop with only five other women. Until then, only administrative and traditionally female positions were open to women. But, with the ramp up of wartime operations, more able bodies were needed in support positions, therefore opening the doors to women previously closed.
