World War I: Women’s Lives During the War

What did your female ancestor do during World War I? Whether she was on the home front or the battle front, women did participate in the war doing everything from volunteer work with the Red Cross to working as a nurse tending to soldiers. For this 100th anniversary year of the US in World War I, we’ll look at the history of American women during World War I and what resources exist to research their story.
