During World War II, women participated actively in hostilities. Women from USA, UK, USSR and Germany have been at the front alongside men, and others have provided food and supplies. You've probably heard about Lyudmila Pavlichenko, known as Russia's "most lethal female sniper." She killed 309 Nazis during hostilities. In fact, Soviet leaders were astonished to find that women shoot more accurately than men and are more disciplined. So they began to send a lot of female snipers to the front. The Germans were terrified of them and even used the phrase "I hope a sniper kills you!" as a blood curse. During the Second World War for the first time in history women were trained as pilots in the US, who later became heroes and role models.

Turkey also has a well-known female pilot - Sabiha Gokcen, who was a combat pilot in 1937. The martial skills of women can be judged also by looking at a photograph taken on the roof of a building in Los Angeles in 1933, which shows how women organized a boxing match. Besides in the line of battle, women had to replace men on the farms. And so in 1940 80,000 women in England were mobilized to establish the Women’s Land Army. Their task was to look after the bread and butter of the country. Other 164 women were appointed to the Air Transport Auxiliary – the auxiliary transport service of the Royal Air Force during the war. This women's royal air force was formed in Britain in 1917-1919. The historical facts are evidence of the morale of women and rightly many countries today allow them to join the army and take military positions equal to men.
