Collage of photos and objects related to women's service during World War One

The objects highlighted below are held by the Smithsonian's Anacostia Community Museum and represent only a preliminary survey of the museum's holdings that are related to women in World War I.  Please also keep in mind that we have a very broad definition of what constitutes women's involvement in the war.

The photos in this section come from family collections and offer a glimpse into what it was like for families to have a loved one go off to war.
