Women's History Month 2017: World War I Work Resources

Library of Congress http://www.loc.gov/pictures/collection/wwipos/item/2003675265/

I've posted some specific occupations in previous posts so I thought I'd provide a list of articles and resources for learning more about women and work during the early 20th century. This will provide a better understanding of the time period and what possible occupations your female ancestor might have had.

NCpedia - Women in the 1920s in North Carolina

Wiley Online Library - Women's work in census and survey, 1911-1931
