Women in World War I

ca. 1918

Edith Macies, a Private First Class in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve, is shown in this photograph from late in World War I. More than 300 women joined the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve during 1918. They performed clerical duties, allowing the men who had done those jobs to go to the front.
