This week we are discussing the multiple roles of women in war time. These roles ranged from helping make war supplies to caring for the injured, from being the victims of bombing raids and/or genocide to participating in atrocities. In preparation for this assignment you will need to read the text, the PowerPoint presentation on Women and War and the web links at the end of that Power Point.
What surprised you most from your readings about women and war? Why? And what are your main conclusions about the varying roles western women have played in the wars of the past 150 years?
Initial Post – should illustrate a close reading of at least three different types of assigned readings from the week (i.e. not all PowerPoints but should include the text book and required websites), should cite at least three of those sources and should analyze the many-sided nature of the issues under discussion; minimum of 200 words (2 points)
