The Women of World War One

The Women of World War One

Available on BBC Select, Prime Video
The sacrifice of soldiers killed during the bloody battles of the Great War has rightly been commemorated. But the role of women, especially those at home keeping Britain going, has rarely been examined. War reporter Kate Adie looks at the impact of women’s work on the Home Front during World War 1 and whether the changes in their lives were long-lasting or only for the conflict’s duration.
