During the end of the 19th century and beginning of the 20th, women in Britain were going all out to try and get the vote. They did everything they could think of, from petitioning to bombing but it didn't seem to be helping. If anything, the bombing just made it worse and as World War One approached, the country was pretty solid against women getting the vote. When war struck, all the men went off to fight, leaving the women to take over their jobs plus extra jobs created by the war. As a result, most of the campaigners stopped campaigning for 'the Right to Vote' and started the campaign for 'the Right to Serve', urging women to take up what the men had left behind. One of the newly created jobs was making bombs and munitions to fuel the war. The women who worked in these jobs came out with the nickname 'canaries' having ginger hair, yellow faces and infertility in most cases. They were looked down on by the men as many of them were working class and before hand had worked as servants in rich people's houses.
My point being, that when you think of war, you may think of men going and fighting for their county when you should also consider the thousands of women who gave up their beauty, motherhood and lives as they knew there was no way the war could have been won without them.
Thus ends the Little Inspiration of today.
