"Ironically, the memory of the woman heroes of World War I was largely eclipsed by the very women they had inspired. The more blatant evil enacted into law by Nazi Germany during the Second World War ensured that those who fought against it would continue to fascinate people long after the first war had become a vague, unpleasant memory - one brought to mind only by fading photographs of serious, helmeted young men standing in sandbagged trenches, by smiling young women in ankle length nursing uniform, or by the presence of poppies in Remembrance Day ceremonies.
But the involvement of these forgotten women should secure for them a place in remembered history. During the conflict that was placed before them, they not only gained the gratitude of many in their own generation but they proved, for the first time on a global scale, the enormous value of a woman's contribution, paving the way for future generations of women to do the same."
