The mobilisation of women during the First World War, allowed many women to take on jobs traditionally occupied by men and, thanks to modern, efficient forms of integration, to also play an
active part in support and assistance roles in the civil sector. This has enabled organizations such as the Council of Italian Women to be instrumental in confirming the patriotic commitment and emancipationist aspirations of the nation’s women.
