American women served in all duties during World War I. They were doctors, hospital administrators, ambulance and truck drivers, telephone operators, nurses, dietitians, physical therapists, reconstruction aides, entertainers, canteen workers, office workers, fundraisers and more. For many women, it was a chance to work at tasks unavailable to them in the regular circumstances of society.
