Bomb Girls is a Canadian television drama that debuted on 04 January 2012.
The plot profiles the stories of four women working in a Canadian munitions factory during World War II, beginning in 1941.
Originally intended to be a six-part drama mini-series, two seasons have aired.
Writing an article on Women at War, legendary and controversial journalist Dottie Shannon visits the factory – ruffling feathers and shining a light on the stark disparity between women and men’s salaries. After this revelation, Lorna is torn – does she pursue a raise and risk the wrath of her male co-workers, or consent to the status quo “for the good of the war effort”? Gladys runs into Clifford Perry (Tahmoh Penikett) in the most unexpected of places and learns the true extent of the shadow-world of intelligence. Kate is faced with a career conundrum when she’s offered the chance to sing in a live revue – only to discover that it’s a bawdy burlesque show.
