  • Women of World War 1!
  • Today, we will be talking about Women of World War 1!
  • Women during World War 1 were recruited into jobs vacated by men who fought in the war as a result new jobs were created.
  • What jobs did women have during this time?
  • Women worked in munitions factories (for the high demand of weapons), as railway guards, ticket collectors, conductors, and worked machinery.
  • Also women's employment rates increased from 23.6% all the way to 46.7%. However, people worried because women were paid less than men, and employers would continue to employ women, even when men came back.
  • As a result, before the end of the war women refused lower pay and decided to strike for equal pay. Following these strikes a Committee was set up by the war cabinet to examine women's wages. Their report endorsed 'equal pay for equal work.' However, women did not get the result they wanted.
