Thousands of women in Britain served in all the armed services, some were pilots ferrying aircraft. Many served with the fire services in the blitz and similar units and they formed the Land Army to work on farms and similar. Of course many replaced men who were conscripted into the armed forces in the factories. Lastly many brave women fron Britain spent time and their lives working with the resistance on the Continent. There were many women who were involved in WWII. Many women became more involved in the war and did the jobs that men did. But if you're asking for famous women the only one I can think of is Eva Braun (Hitler's wife) and I think Anne Frank.
