This volume explores the history of women’s activities in southwestern Minnesota during World War I. By focusing on the contributions of women in a particular geographical location, a piece is added to the larger historical puzzle of what was happening in the region, the state, and the nation during the conflict. The volume also presents new information about job opportunities for women during World War I, when women in southwest Minnesota took jobs such as lumberyard employees and railroad workers.
