"The soldiers who mutinied were mutinying not so much to end the war as to demand that the war be conducted differently.
"These soldiers were looking to the state and saying, 'We are citizens. You cannot simply hurl us at machine guns and blow us up. We're citizens of a republic, we have rights.' I think something very similar was going on with these women munitions workers. They link their own conditions in the factory with what they perceive to be an unfair burden of sacrifice on their own husbands and brothers."
