Social Impact During WW1


Social Change During WW1

DORA - Defence Of The Realms Act, this act put many restrictions of different aspects of society during the war. Limits of alcohol were reduced but the volumes of alcohol were also reduced. Pub opening hours were altered. Food rationing was incorporated later into the war after food shortages became evident.

Women- Women worked commonly now. Mostly in the munitions factories and farming to help the war effort whilst all the men to take up the jobs were away fighting.

Most of society was heavily altered by the first world war and these changes outlasted the way society worked for a long while after this.
