Centennial Reading Series - The Hello Girls: America's First Women Soldiers

6:30 pm, Basil's on Market, 312 N. Patterson Blvd, Dayton. The Hello Girls: America's First Women Soldiers, by Elizabeth Cobbs is the story of how America's first women soldiers fought in the US Army in 1918, helped to win World War I, and earned the vote. The US Army Signal Corps sent 223 women to France. They were the masters of the latest technology - the telephone switchboard - and were charged with connecting telephone lines and dispatching messages between units and command posts. While Suffragettes picketed the White House and President Woodrow Wilson struggled to persuade a segregationist Congress to give women of all races the vote, these competent and courageous young women swore the Army oath. The last of them were discharged in 1920, dismissed by the Army with no veterans benefits.
