On the celebration of Centennial of America’s entry into World War I, this new presentation highlights how women in Maryland rallied to new involvement and activism during 1917-1918. In the rural areas of Maryland, including Montgomery County, farms suffered extreme shortages of workers as men left for the war. At the same time, America became the main food source not only for feeding people at home and for American soldiers abroad but also for the people of Europe on the brink of starvation. Farm work became a patriotic crusade for women, and suffragettes encouraged a new kind of farm worker called the farmerette. Female grit and gusto made a difference in Maryland during the war
