Women’s Roles in the First World War

Last updated: Aug 22nd, 2019

To mark the end of ‘Women’s History Month’ we asked our History Tours Development Manager, freelance historian and all-round history enthusiast, Paula Kitching, to pull together the key details of women’s roles in the First World War.

Before the First World War, British women were largely bound to domestic life, spending much of their time in the home. However, once Britain’s men went to fight, women stepped up and took over male dominated roles in factories, on the land, in offices and at the Front.
