Satisfactory Essays
The First World War reflected the women’s social and economic position. However, feminists still were not happy with the fact that women’s work was classified as less important than men. (Women Memorial.Org) Granted men did oppose women’s involvement in male jobs during the First World War, but the country needed women and their skills in order to get the men out of the office and onto the battlefield. Little do people realize that women have already been volunteering with organizations by providing nursing, transportation, and other war relief services, also women aligned themselves with humanitarian organizations such as the American Red Cross, YMCA, Salvation Army to meet wartime needs. World War I did mark a new era in the women’s movement.
