Waiouru Army Museum is showcasing Women of Empire 1914-1918 that draws on the personal experiences of New Zealand and Australian women during the First World War.
The First World War was a transformative experience for many women. Opportunities to take on new roles and learn new skills saw these women become ambulance drivers, doctors, farmers and fund-raisers. They travelled the world, from Cairo to the Western Front, from Samoa to Serbia; or they remained at home, ‘doing their bit’ to keep businesses, farms and households afloat while their men served King and country in far away lands.
