Abstract

This article explores women’s economic, social, and political responses to the First World War. It addresses their mobilization including their engagement with the war effort as well as their resistance to it. Women’s work during the war took a variety of forms, including essential waged labor and extensive volunteer work in and outside of their homes. The essay offers a brief comparative overview of women’s war work and mobilization. It argues that the precise impact of the war on women’s political and social experiences and opportunities remains complex and varied on a state and on an individual level.
