About The Event

Uniformed Women and the Great War

(Third-Floor East, Gateway)

The new third-floor east gateway display will explore the active and largely overlooked role played by women throughout the war, both as a part of the preparedness effort before 1917 and afterwards, at home and abroad, as uniformed members of the Army, Navy, Marines, Red Cross, YMCA and Land Army, among others. In a larger historical context, the exhibit will highlight the role of uniformed women in WWI as a precursor to the women’s suffrage movement of the 1920s.
