How did the influx of women into the workplace change America?
During WW1, women entered into manufacturing jobs in large numbers to replace the men going off to fight. This showed Americans that women could do the same jobs as men. While after the most women left the workforce, a significant number remained. This led to women receiving the right to vote via teh 19th Ameendment ratified in 1919, a year after the war ended.
