Women stay home or work?

I also think that women should work. because when men get in the field and get hurt we need first aid care because most men will not be able to do that, because they do not have much time as women, to go to school and learn how to take care of the wounded the dead. approximately 1,600,000 women joined the work force between 1914-1918.
