"It’s such an important story of racial struggle. The dominance of one race over the another and I think it’s such a great story. It would be a shame for people to not see it or turn away for another reason." 

Um…

oh wow things just got way meta.

In 1941, Katherine Lowe and Elizabeth Moku were best friends, both already married with children, and working together at the Dole pineapple factory in Honolulu. “I was a trimmer,” Katherine said. “It was hard work.”

On the morning of Dec. 7, “We were ready to go to church. We didn’t know we were at war. We went to church anyway. We were looking at all the planes bombing.”

Lowe remembered the nights of fear that followed. “There was a blackout. We couldn’t go nowhere. No more lights. We had to blacken up our house.”

With the nation at war, she applied for one of the new civilian jobs at the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard, in a storage facility. For fun the women played volleyball and basketball. Another photo in the archive shows Elizabeth Moku with an undefeated basketball team. "We were rugged," Lowe said. "We carried heavy stuff, oil drums, bags, anything that needed to be stored."

Fires in the storage areas were common, and could be devastating, so “they trained us for firefighting.” She said she recalled at least one time when they put their skills to use at an actual fire, but she remembers it mostly for the recreation it provided. “It was a lot of fun. We’d shoot water at one another.”

Lowe said she had no memory of anyone taking a photograph, but she can tell from the two photos that they’re not at a fire, probably a training exercise at the Pearl Harbor shipyard.

The women stayed friends after the war. Katherine Lowe’s children called Elizabeth by the name “Auntie Moku." Moku retired as a Navy commissary cashier, and died in 1986.

Lowe went on to work as a clerk in a Navy office at Pearl Harbor, moved to Okinawa with her second husband to work for the U.S. Army, and then moved back to Pearl Harbor before retiring. She had eight children altogether (her second husband died 41 years ago), and has six children surviving now, with too many grandchildren and great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren to count.

She lives with her daughter and a great-grandson. She walks with a cane, and has to take her blood-pressure medicine, but she’s up at 4 a.m. to hitch a ride to breakfast with friends and then twice a week to her bowling league. She said her bowling average is “145, going down,” and she’s rolling a smaller ball these days, just 10 pounds.

When our photographer visited, she had flowers in her hair and volunteered to do a bit of a traditional hula dance.

(via NBC News, “Pearl Harbor surprise: Photo of female firefighters wasn’t from Dec. 7”)

I’m going to need a movie about these awesome women. I mean women working in the war, firefighting and female friendship? C’mon that sounds awesome.

Even if [Thelma and Louise] was the most man-bashing movie ever made, saying, ‘let’s all of us women get guns and kill men’, it wouldn’t even begin to make up for the 99% of movies where the women are there to be caricatured as bimbos or to be skinned and decapitated. If you’re feeling threatened, you’re sympathising with the wrong character.
