Suffragettes Question 4

Extracts from this document...


History GCSE Coursework- The Suffragettes and Suffragists 4) Both sources F and G are very useful as evidence for the contribution of women to the war effort in the years 1914-1918. Source F shows us a poster produced by the government in 1916 in order to persuade women to become Munitions workers. The poster shows an image of a relatively strong looking woman and it shows us perhaps women worked as Munitions workers, as maybe some women would have applied for the job advertised - Munitions. The poster in source F was also produced by the government, suggesting that they themselves wanted women to work. ...read more.

One final limitation is that the table doesn't show other contributions except for those four industries visible. To conclude, source F aided us in recognising that women may have worked in Munitions factories, and that the government advertised for them to do this. Source G helped us to understand the increase in the number of women in employment during the WW1 years. Overall, I believe source G is more useful, as it gives us real facts and therefore we don't need to guess anything. Whereas, source F forces us to make many inferences, as it doesn't literally tell us about women's contribution to the First World War effort. However, by utilising both of the sources together, we can assume that the poster in source F was successful, by looking at the figures in source G. ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.
