    • Women worked in jobs such as in offices, munitions factories, and knitting socks for the soldiers who were enrolled in World War I.
    • Woman had to work hard to try to support their families due to the absence of the males who were fighting in the war at the time.
    • Most women would also work as volunteering in organizations such as the Red Cross, which would led them to try to sell war bonds.
    • During this time era was when women were being viewed in a different aspect; that they were highly capable to do the same work as men.
    • This changed the outlook of the women's workplace, even though at the time women were not paid as highly as men were.
