The war saw a generation of men going away to fight. Women left the domestic sphere, becoming a very visible force in public life. From transport to policing, munitions to sport, entertainment, even politics, they were a recognised part of the war machine, demanding greater rights and a better income.
Join war correspondent, author and broadcaster Kate Adie in conversation as she talks about her book Fighting on the Home Front and charts the seismic impact of these women on the modern world.
