Never Before Seen Photos of Women Working During the First World War

Monday, August 4th marked the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War. To commemorate that, we decide to show you some never before seen photos of the people BEHIND the action: the women. The women of WWI were the first generation of women to abandon their home duties and be in the middle of the workforce. Seen in these next pictures, women were replacing men as nurses, firefighters, and even factory workers.
