Abstract

This short documentary raises questions about women's changing roles in England during World War I. Women took on traditionally men's roles by becoming factory workers, police officers, and surgeons as well as by forming football (soccer) leagues. Although the public wondered whether these changes were temporary or permanent, women's war efforts pushed forward the campaign for women's suffrage.
