This book examines the impact of war on social change in general, as well as the effects of the "total industrial war" on the status of women in industrial society. Attention is given to the feminist organizations of women that emerged during World War I in several European countries (for example, France, Great Britain, Germany, Italy), the increase in female employment throughout this war and the increase in power Women's politician. It is observed that around 1919, at the end of the First World War, the principle of equality in work-equality of salaries was a priority objective of women's organizations. The changes did not affect all classes of women equally: middle-class women had more advantages than lower-class women. The post-war periods tend to generate counter-tendencies. The period starting in 1918-1921 is discussed, as well as the economic crisis that took place between 1929 and 1933.
