Women in the war

There were many different ways that the women of America helped support the country and the soldiers out at war.       

During World War I women were needed to aid the wounded men who were at war. With more technology women could get to the soldiers faster.
Women were given more responsibilities by men during the war. The men knew that they were valuable during this hard war. They were trusted with their new technology to heal the wounded.
As women were successful in helping the wounded more men became comfortable having them there. They knew that the women were only there to help them.
The Red Cross was founded by Clara Barton and this became a well respected company that would help the injured. Women would work for the Red Cross and help heal the sailors.
Women did much more than just work in the medical field. The women who stayed in America would take the men's jobs and make products that would help the men who were at war.
Women wanted to be helpful during this war so they could earn the respect of the men. During World War I they took their part in the war very seriously.
More women who didn't live near factories would help with the farms that were left by the men. Food was needed for the soldiers and farming this land was an easy way to get them the things they needed to survive.
More women would take the harder "back breaking" jobs that the men used to have before they went off to war. These jobs needed to be done to keep the country and the soldiers jobs running smoothly.
These women continued to cook the food that was needed for the country and for the soldiers away at war. Without these women doing this job the soldiers and people of America would have not had enough food to survive.
To try and save some products for the men at war, women would try to conserve as much as possible so they could send it over to the troops fighting. They never wanted them to run out of supplies.
