This Chapter examines the impact that the First World War had on women's dress. It focuses on the debates that surrounded women in uniform, both official and unofficial, that appeared in the press during the war, and compares the appearance and reception of women's unofficial, paramilitary organisations with that of the official Women's Army Auxiliary Corps, created in 1917.
