Abstract

This book by British historiian Arthur Marwick was one of the first studies on women during World War I pubished in 1977. The focus of the study is Britain. His main thesis that women women "emancipated" during World War I because they gained  access to areas of the economy, society and politics previously only open to men was and is highly contested and criticized by women and gender historians who demonstrated with their later reserach that man of the opportunities opend to women duering the war were taken away again after the conflict ended in 1918.
