They volunteered for hospital duty, serving in dangerous frontline aid stations, and served as part of the vast clerical bureaucracy that ensured that men and material was were in ready supply.
Most importantly, they took over jobs in the Pullman Factory as men went off to serve; the production lines never stopped.
