Hi RepMan - great blog entry! I love reading about the women's movement and women's roles in important historical developments, and I would like to add that in England and France this "movement" really started during World War I. Women there had to take over the farms and factories in the UK and France as millions and millions of their sons, brothers, husbands and fathers died in the trenches. The main difference with WWI is that most women lost their jobs and went back to the farm or the home when the men who could do those jobs did return. It was a very difficult transition for many of them, and for many of the men, too - so many were shellshocked and badly wounded, and any kind of "after-care" for veterans was sadly lacking at that time. History is fascinating wherever we find it. Thank you for bringing up this intriguing period!
