In the book Revolutionary Mothers, author Carol Berkin discusses women’s roles in the American Revolution. She separates out the chapters so that she can discuss the different experiences and roles of women during the period. She utilizes primary and secondary sources to talk about how women stepped into their husband’s shoes and maintained their livelihoods and how they furthered the war effort on both sides, as well as how classes and race effected each woman’s experience. Berkin’s main goal was for the reader to understand that although women’s roles aren’t traditionally discussed when talking about the American Revolution, nevertheless, they played a major part in it.

During the 1930s it was a very difficult time for everyone. Many women who did not have a job were in a way forced to find a job because their husbands were laid off or suffered from a wage-cuts and couldn't support their families financially().

While some women who had posed as men prior to the start of the war felt pressured to enlist as any man would, there were others who chose to join the army so that they could follow family members and loved ones into battle.

For example, the role of women increased as volunteers began to desert their businesses to serve in the war. Women began to run shops and businesses while the men were away, which helped them thrive in the midst of chaos.
