1.1 Women did things like...
1.1.1 Farming
1.1.2 Ammunitions manufacture
1.1.3 Building planes and tanks etc
1.2 When women did things back home for the war effort such as farming they were called the 'Women's Land Army'.
1.3 Women had agreed to stop there protests for the vote as they had all agreed that the war needed to come first, this in many people opinion is what actually inadvertently won them the vote.

2.1 Many people were actually happy when it was declared there was a war, people weren't aware of the consequences of the war.
3 World war 1 ended on 11th November 1918
