How the war changed women's life?

Hello everyone!

My question for today is, how does a war change a woman's life?

World wars have changed lives of women, men and children in millions of ways. All these changes led people to change their way of thinking about gender, male and female behaviours and looks, which qualities they should have, and which roles they should assume in their families and communities...

When men were away to serve in the military, manufacturing jobs opened up to women and raised their earning power and their self-esteem. But female employment was only encouraged as long as the war was on... Once the war ended, civilian and federal policies replaced women workers with men. Some women decided to return back to domestic life, but those who wanted or had to work, well their options were limited, as men returned back home and then they pushed women out...

Well, the main point is that: women have proved that they can do "men's" work and do it well...

Wartime work proved to the whole world that women aren't bad, also they embraced the wartime challenges and enjoyed it's benefits, but everyone (men and women) then went back to their roles, as I said before...

Thank you for reading!!!๐Ÿ˜

So, my questions are:

1) Do you think, that men and women can do the same work?

2) How else does war and conflict affect women?
