The role on women after WWII was similar to that before the war. Women experiences wonderful job growth during the war, but once it ended their employers expected them to quit and return to their domestic lives. Employers held onto this belief; even though statistics showed that a large percentage of both married and unmarried women wanted to continue working. A great number of women did quit, or were fired, though some did decide to stay and were lucky enough to keep their place in the work force. Those that remained in the factories faced incredible sexism and were barred from joining many labor unions. Despite these odds, the employment of women has still increased since then.

During the first world war, while all the men joined the army to fight in the war, the women left behind at home worked in the factories making machinery and weapons for the soldiers to use overseas. This caused them to not have anybody bossing them around and they got a sense of liberty that they campaigned to keep after the war.

the role of women changed immensly after world war two. As the soldiers returned, women were made redundant from their jobs, and men were able to take their old ones back. All over the country, what women had feared would happen after the war, was happening. The role of women decreased, and they saw a shift into the household once again. The governmental propoganda made sure that this would happen.

The traditional perceptions of the role of women changed during World War 1 because many women were forced to take jobs outside of their homes while the men were away. Women worked making bandages, ammunition, and other supplies for war efforts.

During World War 1 women were called upon to be nurses to soldiers. During World War 1 women also took the jobs that were left behind by the men that were in battle in an effort to support their families.
