Changing roles: women take up the fight
Changing roles: women take up the fight 
From the traditional role as nurse to today's combat women, Australian women have always volunteered in times of war. Restricted by their gender from serving in the armed forces for a large portion of the 20th century, women found other ways to contribute to the war effort. The contribution of women during wartime has often fallen under the radar as they performed integral support roles but did not see battle. They did, however, experience the horrors of war as prisoners, nurses, doctors, entertainers and journalists. In addition to these women who actually saw war first hand, countless numbers of women performed vital roles on the home front, assisting in the war effort while also challenging traditional perceptions of what women were capable of.
