This introduction sets out the way in which the book explores women's wartime experiences in the context of politics and protest, home-front mobilization, service abroad, blue-collar and white-collar work, and popular culture representations. Challenging the notion that war brought transformative changes, it nonetheless emphasizes the way in which diverse women used the war for their own agendas of expanding their economic, political, and personal opportunities. In addition to assessing war's impact on the "new woman," the introduction addresses the impact of women's service and labor on mobilizing for a modern global war.
