The government used the Espionage Act to counter the loss of enthusiasm and opposition to the war at home. The act made it illegal to do, publish, or say negative that would hurt the war effort.
There was more rights for women
Wars are economically disruptive, and armies consume a lot of resources, so you get shortages, and then you use rationing to ensure that people are at least getting enough food or other necessities (gasoline typically) to survive, even though they can't get as much as they would normally get.
The three allied powers in World War 1 were Russia, Britain and France. They were referred to as the Triple Alliance.
ww1 had lack of food privileges and their leaders were strict and they last a lot of men because of their stupidity. they also had lice in their clothes and it would get infected and at points it killed more men then the enemy had! terrible terrible conditions.
Serbian nationalism had a strong impact on tensions in Europe prior to World War I in a variety of ways. The most dramatic was the negative influence that it had on stability in the Austro-Hungarian Empire; in particular, it led indirectly to the assassination of the Archduke Ferdinand, which was the match-point that ignited the war.
Women made bombs, ammunition and thousands of other things for the war.
One of the songs made popular by returning American veterans was titled "I've Got to Make Up for Lost Time." Beginning in 1946, the United States experienced a surge in marriages and birth rates. The young adults (ages 18 to 30) of this era became the most "marrying" generation in American history, with 97 percent of the women and 94 percent of the men taking marriage vows. By 1950, the age of marriage for American women had dropped below 20, another record, while the percentage of divorces, initially high among returning veterans, reached an all time low. The baby boom was equally dramatic. The number of children per family in the United States jumped from 2.6 in 1940 to 3.2 by decade's end. Birthrates doubled for a third child, and tripled for a fourth, as the American population grew by 20 million in the 1940s. At at a time when access to birth control information was rapidly increasing, U.S. population rivaled not England's, but rather India's. These spiraling marriages and birth rates went hand in hand with a shift back to more traditional sex roles following World War II. Actress Ann Sothern exemplified the reordering of domestic priorities when she advised women, shortly before Japan's surrender, to begin "planting our house- our perfect house" and to think about the nursery. " I know a lot of men are dreaming of coming back not only to those girls who waved goodbye to them," she added. " They are dreaming of coming back to to the mothers of their children and the least we can do as women is try to live up to those expectations." Indeed, one of the most popular wartime advertisements showed a mother in overalls about to leave for the factory. She is at the door when her little daughter asks: " Mother, when will you stay home again?" And she responds: " Some jubilant day, mother will stay at home again doing the job she likes - making a home for you and daddy when he gets back." Quite naturally, this emphasis on family life strengthened long-held prejudices against married women holding full-time jobs outside the home. As a result, the gains made in female employment during World War II largely disappeared. Returning veterans reclaimed millions of factory jobs held by women and minorities. The female labor force dropped from a wartime high of 19 million in 1945 to less than 17 million by 1947. On the Ford and General motors assembly lines, the percentage of women plummeted from 25 to 6 percent. Though many women gladly returned to their domestic lives, the vast majority, according to post-war surveys, hoped to keep their jobs. " I'd stay if they wanted me to," said a female aircraft worker, " but without taking a man's place from him." The social pressures on women were enormous. A host of "experts" including psychiatrists, psychologists, and pediatricians, asserted that women belonged in the home for their own good as well as the good of society - that women "needed" to be housewives and mothers in order to be fulfilled. In their 1947 best-seller Women: The Lost Sex, Marynia Farnham and Ferdinand Lundberg noted that "all mature childless women are emotionally disturbed," and that " the pursuit of a career is essentially masculine." Furthermore, these experts claimed that returning veterans needed special love and attention after so many years away from home. The concept of "mothering" as central to the post-war family was further popularized by Dr. Benjamin Spock, whose "Common Sense Book of Baby and Child Care" (1946) became the standard reference for parents of the "baby boom" generation. While most viewers noted Spock's relaxed, more permissive attitude toward child rearing, another message came through as well. Women must be the primary caregivers, Spock insisted. It was their role to shape the infant into a normal, happy adult. For Spock and countless others, a man's success was measured by his performance in the outside world, a woman's success by her skills in raising well-adjusted children. As feminist author Betty Friedan recalled, "Oh, how Dr. Spock could make me feel guilty!" The emphasis on traditional sex roles also affected female education. World War II had opened up new oppurtunities for women in science, engineering, and medicine. For the first time in history, women constituted a majority of the nation's college graduates. But the return of the male veterans, combined with the educational benefits provided them by the G. I bill, reversed these temporary gains. Although the number of college women increased after World War II, the percentage of females in colleges declined dramatically. At Cornell University, for example, women comprised 50 percent of the wartime classes, but only 20 percent of the post-war classes. More significantly, the percentage of college women who actually graduated fell from 40 percent during World War II to 25 percent by 1950. The steepest declines occurred in professional education. Engineering colleges, which doubled their enrollment to more than 200, 000 by 1946, accepted fewer than 1,300 women, with more than half of these schools accepting no women at all. Female enrollments in medical schools dropped from a high of 15 percent during World War II to 5 percent by 1950. A study of medical students in this era showed deep prejudice among the men and self-limiting attitudes among the women. The majority of men, believing they made better doctors, thought that women should face tougher admission standards. The majority of women, insisting that marriage was more important than a career, claimed they would cut back their hours, or even stop working, to meet their family obligations. On campuses across the nation, educators struggled to find proper curriculum for female students. The ideal, said one college president, was to enable women "to foster the intellectual and emotional life of her family and community" - to fill the American home with proper moral values, a love of culture, and an appreciation of good wine and gourmet cooking. Before long, the postwar American woman became the nation's primary consumer. Between 1946 and 1950, Americans purchased 21 million automobiles, 20 million refrigerators, 5.5 million electric stoves, and more than 2 million dishwashers. This consumer explosion resulted from a number of factors: the baby boom, the huge savings accumulated during World War II, the availability of credit, and the effectiveness of mass advertising in creating consumer demand. The average American now had access to department store charge accounts and easy payment plans with almost no money down. "Buy now, Pay Later," urged General motors, and most people obliged. In 1950, as consumer debt surpassed $100 billion, the Diner's Club introduced America's first credit card. The Depression age virtues of thrift and savings seemed as distant as the depression itself. Ironically, this new consumer society led millions of women back into the labor force. By 1950, more women were working outside the home than ever before. The difference, however, was that postwar American women returned to low-paying, often part-time employment in "feminine" jobs such as clerks, salespeople, secretaries, waitresses, telephone operators, and domestics. Working to supplement the family income, to help finance the automobile, the kitchen appliances, the summer vacation, the children's college tuition, American women earned but 53 percent of the wages of American men in 1950- a drop of 10 percent since the heady years of "Rosie the Riveter" during World War II. pogwash is the name oh hitlers daughter she was known as a slut.

ANSWERER SHOULD READ THE QUESTION PROPERLY.
a strong arm race devolped as a result of the military bulidup ------< NOVA NET
Yes they did, they were as efficient as men and got their work done, the reason why the US troops got all their equipment and rations..... they worked as things like nurses, farmers, ambulance drivers, munitionettes, postwomen, police woman. By doing these jobs and taking over men's jobs, woman proved to be efficient which also contributed to gaining the right to vote. factory workers
It takes a long time to die from the effects of syphillis, often several decades after exposure. Even then frequently death results from secondary complications caused or exacerbated by the disease. So, if you're asking how many got the disease during the war and died from it during the war, probably zero. I do not know that any statistics were kept as to the origin of the disease in patients who later died from it or its effects. I can say that so far as the American Expeditionary Force goes, their rate of genito-urinary infection was probably the lowest in US history. This was directly due to the determination of General Pershing to bring the boys back home as pure in body as he got them from their mothers. When US troops began debarking from their transports at French ports such as Cherbourg, the brothels were immediately closed and MPs placed on guard in front, despite the immediate protests of the mayor that this was horrible for business, and barbaric. Just as soon as possible the American troops were on trains to the middle of nowhere, where they were billeted in barns in the countryside around little villages, in as remote locations as could be found, all to limit just as much as possible any chance for amorous adventures and contracting the Love Bug. Very, very few of the Doughboys got to see Paree. They entered France through small ports, lived in barns in the wilderness until they went to the front, and if they lived through that, for most it was straight to Camp Lucky Strike at Le Havre (where the most rigorous exertions were made to curtail commercial love and the concommitant Carnal Flu), and then back home. Doughboys had a much better chance of getting the clap from domestic prostitutes near Army camps in the states, and any who managed to pull that off were court martialed and severely punished for damaging government property.
In England, a lot of women took over jobs that had previously been done by men, because the men were away at war. Women joined the police force, they worked as postwomen, bus conductors, drove delivery vans and worked in farming and forestry. A lot of women went to work in munitions factories, which was an important but dangerous job. Many women who had previously worked in domestic service left to work in factories or in other jobs.
Recruiting Officers in all countries closed their eyes when eager children clearly under the required age - 18 years old - showed up to join their armies.
At the end of the war children were even more welcome in the ranks, as the Great Mincing Machine continued to require human bodies with an astonishing need.
Hardly trained, the kids were send to the trenches in Belgium, France, Russia and Turkey, where they mingled and died with the older soldiers
In the United States, most of the time, a person had to choose between being loyal to King George and the British, or being loyal to the Colonials fighting for independence. There was usually no room for people who were undecided, middle of the road. You were forced to choose between loyalty and Independence. It was very difficult and many people suffered as a result. If you favored the King, you were attacked by people fighting for independence. If you favored independence, you were attacked by British soldiers. It was a very difficult time to be alive, and those who sided with the King, were often forced to leave the Colonies after the war ended and many of them went to Canada.

in simple terms, not enough people were joining the War effort so they needed more people to join. conscription was an easy way to get people to join.
Absolutism cut down the rights of the people by adding new taxes and forcing peasants to become land-locked serfs. Absolutism created riots and revolts led by the angry peasants who simply wanted to live their normal lives without government interference.

the u.s.a because it has the best milatary and has the largest economy of any country in the world
Militarism began in Europe after the reign of Napoleon I. Many nations, after having witnessed the success that could be achieved by a strong army, sought to strengthen their military forces and they did so in competition with each other.
