Synopsis

In l914 the world changed forever. When World War Ibroke out and a generation of men went off to fight, bestselling author Kate Adie shows how women emerged from the shadows of their domestic lives. Now a visible force in public life, they began to take up essential roles from transport to policing, munitions to sport, entertainment, and even politics. They had finally become citizens, a recognized part of the war machine, acquiring their own rights and often an independent income. Former BBC Chief News Correspondent Kate Adie charts the seismic move towards equal rights with men that began a century ago and asks what these women achieved for future generations. This is history at its best a vivid, compelling account of the pioneering women who helped win the war as well as a revealing assessment of their legacy for women's lives today."
