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

The objects and collections highlighted below are held by the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum (NASM) 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.

These objects and collections are largely related to women aviators.  See also NASM's page about Ruth Law, an aviator during WWI, and their online exhibition about women in aviation and space history.
