Woman`s Suffrage

Women`s Suffrage

Foner tells a good summary of the change in Women`s Suffrage during the beginning of World War I.  Just like during the Civil War, women sold war bonds, organized patriotic rallies, and went to work in war production factories. Many women served as clerical workers and nurses with American forces in Europe. They believed that wartime service would earn them equal rights at home. In 1920, the United States became the twenty-seventh country to allow women to vote.

1) Did women immediately gain access to male dominant jobs; such as construction or police officers?

2) Were women now allowed to take part in the military?
