What were the working conditions for women like in World War 1?

=Working Conditions for Women in World War one were very dangerous. Since they had to makeammunition for the soldiers they it was very dangerous, because if one of the guns burst that can set off all the rest. It was a very dangerous job for the women to do that's why right when the men came home from war they went right back to their homes to do their regular jobs. The women got paid for working at those jobs but only half the price as men! They even put more hours into their jobs. The women noticed that they were not getting treated with the same respect as men so the women went on strike. When the women got the right to vote they decide to stop going on strike and go back to work sooner or later they got their jobs back that the men needed help for. Now these days women are in freedom from being in prison!!!=
