Women Working

After the United States entered the war in 1917, women supported the war effort in numerous ways.During the war, women also entered the workforce in new ways. large numbers of women were recruited into jobs that were left by men who had gone to fight in the war.Women’s employment rates increased during WWI.But women were paid less than men, there was a worry that employers would continue to employ women in these jobs even when the men returned from the war.The women workers on London buses and trams went on strike in 1918 to demand the same increase in pay as men. The strike spread to other towns in the South East and to the London Underground. This was the first equal pay strike. The women won the strike.

My opinion

i don't support war because there is no point . if everyone just keeps to there self and stop getting in everyone else business there would be no problems.
