Two million women were directly involved with Yugoslavia's partisans, and 100,000 were in the army during the war against Germany. They served with men as officers and also served in the government. About 38% of those officially designated as heroes were Party members before the war. After the war the Party took control of the Women's Front, organized in 1941. Political apathy among women became apparent after the war.
