Women were needed in the work place so that men could go to war. Women helped make guns, ammunition, airplanes, tanks and what ever was needed for the war effort.
With so many men in the armed forces, women were needed to work on farms and factories.
Frankly, they worked because the men were fighting the war and the positions needed to be filled. Women wanted to work and many were already working... so why not let them?
Most able bodied men were in the armed forces and they needed women to build airplanes.
During World War II (1939-1945), many women answered the call of the U.S. government and went to work in droves to produce needed supplies for the war effort.
---- ---- Much more likely in WW1. The US had to send more men into the Army and needed women to work the factories so they could meet the production of supplies needed at the back lines.
During World War 2, women were involved in war work and as members of the military.
The war really introduced women into the workforce. Pre-WW2, a woman's place, truly was, in the kitchen. But when the men went off to war, somebody needed to work the factories, so women took the jobs.
in world war 1 the women were used to clean wounds and take care of the injured
women working in factories in ww2 did lots. the work in the factories because all the men were fighting and they needed somebody to make supplies of the men at war. the women made aircraft's, ammunition, weapons and over thing needed. it was essential for woman to work in the factories or the allied peoples victory would have lost.
Yes, there were women in world war 1 and 2. The women had to work on farms and grow food for the men
Employment after World War 1 was discouraged for women. This was because women were taking up jobs in the market that men coming home from the war needed.
They went wackoo and they needed an outside job!!
Because with all of the men gone at war, there was no one to work, but the women stepped in to substitute for the men.
Since many men were away fighting the war, women stepped in to do agricultural work.
because of all of the boys were in war
Because most of the men were in the military and they still needed factory workers, farm workers and ship builders. Women took over these roles.
Most of the men were fighting the war, so they had to be replaced by women workers
The men were fighting the war so women went to work.
Women were nurses in World War I there werent any Women soldiers in World War I and few women leaders.they did the mens work. some of them went to work in factory's to produce weapon's, some of them made clothes, also some of them went to war as paramedics or amblaunce drivers.
They stayed at home, did not work, and did house work.
women made airplanes for the navy and army
No only 35% of available women
Because all the men were in the army, and none of them were in the work force, so there were all these vacant job positions, and they needed someone to fill them in, so women applied.
In some parts of the world they were forced to work, in others they did it from a sense of patriotism
