Well-over 30,000 women participated in the United States war effort during World War I. The vast majority served as nurses, but there were also impressive numbers who volunteered to "do their bit" as drivers and telephone operators. Many chose to serve in the religious organizations, such as the Y.M.C.A., the Knights of Columbus or the Jewish Welfare Board. Additionally, there were organizations strictly for African-American women set up in order to render aid for their brothers-in-arms. They all needed uniforms and that is what this well-illustrated article is addressing. Never before had there been such a conflict requiring uniforms be cut in women's sizes, and this matter was not simply new to American women, it was a new day in human history as well.

"The background of women's service uniforms is war, war of the most terrible kind.
How unseemly any attempt to make the costume pleasing to the eye."
