During World War II, almost 50,000 women served in Canada's Armed Services. Over 4,500 women were Nursing Sisters (all officers); 750,000 were in the war industry; 440,000 in civilian labour force and 760,000 on farms. Practically all these women were born before women were declared persons in Canada in 1929.
