But their ranks also include more ordinary writers, who felt compelled to write about their often extraordinary experiences - as nurses, ambulance drivers, munitions workers and more - during the war. This text explores the literary, social and psychological themes that emerge from the writing of women from all walks of life. Their diaries, letters, newspaper and magazine pieces, short stories and novels document their powerful and complex response to what remains one of the most tumultuous periods in history.
