British Women in World War I

Behind the front line of the Great War were an army of women playing a pivotal role in history. Whilst the men fought a war, women were at the epicentre of change. An estimated two million women replaced absent men in the workplace. The women that lived, fought and died in the war showed, in stark terms, how women were equal to men in bravery, ingenuity and capacity to work.
