World War I's unsung female heroes

A nurse, a factory worker and a Sergeant-Major... not all World War I heroes wore capes. Nor were they male. 💪

    jesus what a world we’re living in. Men during war literally sacrificed their lives for the country and lived through great pain knowing they wont see their family again, and cheap news websites would rather write about “introducing the REAL heroes of war! WOMEN! Look, this one went to college instead of looking for a husband. And this one worked in a factory during war! Such bravery😩😩”

    Did any of the great war heroes wear capes? They'd get caught on everything 😂

    I think the point is, women played a part in the war! And without there efforts on the home front! In factories making engines for planes and tanks and munitions for our weapons we might not have prevailed.

    🤔 so it was an all woman effort and the men just pissed off over seas to die for no reason? Okay!
