The Frist World War was an effective opportunity in shaping Canada’s individuality from Britain. Before the First World War, a man was considered the head of the household who worked and provided for the family while women were expected to cook, clean, and take care of the children. When the war broke out the men went off and the women were led to work in areas of work that were meant for men in order to financially support their family. There were opportunities for women to become nurses and volunteer near the front lines treating the soldiers. Prior to the war, women were not considered a person and were treated as if they were inferior to men.

From nothing to schools that helped them learn and help them get a bigger opportunity. Despite how great women are now, long ago they didn’t have the right to work or even to go to schools.

The late 1960s in Canada, as throughout the Western world, saw the emergence of a new women 's movement. This new feminism rejected all limits to the equality of women 's rights and showed that equality in daily life cannot be obtained through simple legal, political or institutional modifications. Women were greatly influenced by books and articles by feminists such as Kate Millett, Germaine Greer, Gloria Steinem and Shulamith Firestone, and by publications such as Women Unite: An Anthology of the Women 's Movement (1972) and Margaret Anderson 's Mother Was Not a Person (1973).

Women have a long history of service in the military. During that World War era, women had to step up to perform critical army jobs while men had to fight.

World War II impacted many people and places around the world. What many people may not know is that World War II had a great impact on fashion as well. When the war began, the government created laws to ration clothing material that could be used during the war. These laws limited the types of fabrics that could be used to make for clothing. However, this allowed women to think outside of the box by making their own clothing in many different and affordable ways.
Women had to adapt to new lifestyles during World War 1 as the death toll of Australian troops just kept decreasing. Due to this, women back home were expected to work the men’s hard labour. World War 1 tested gender roles and it changed the way women were looked at. Before war women, if married would stay home to cook, clean and look after the children. Cooking cleaning and waitressing were all considered service work that single women would have to attend to, and young women were expected to marry
It was known by the government that the best way to persuade women into aiding the war effort was to appeal to their emotions; women were angry that their loved ones were forced to go off to war to partake in a fight that was believed America had no need to be in. Yet, women were expected to set aside their personal beliefs to insure that America could still make further advancements without its men. However, women still complied because they knew the responsibility laid with them to keep the nation running. Still, much of propaganda had a purpose to motivate women to lend a helping hand in the war.

At the end of World War I and World War II, after women had taken over male jobs while fighting, men returned but women wanted to keep the jobs they had obtained when the war had ended (Stoneham). Women of the wars had gained lots of independence, but when the 1950s came around women lost it and became more domestic. The women of the 1950s returned back to the idea of being required to work at home and that they had no place in society. But 1950s women were more than just a passive link between working women of the war and political activists in the 1960s, the 1950s gave women the drive and motivation to be as strong in society that they are today. (Holt).
There alternative and different ideas of a women’s role in society played a great factor in the changed that took place after World War I. As women’s role in society changed, the fashion trends for women also changed. Due to a dye shortage and fabric shortages during the war, a new utilitarian drabness in dress began to trend. The most noticeable change engendered by war was the relaxation of the formal rules of attire. The women’s hemlines began to shorten, and their ankles began to show; women began to wear sexy heeled shoes and flesh toned silk stocking rather than their previous high button boots.
