The article discusses the military service of Soviet women soldiers during World War II. Although Soviet women had initially served in the Imperial Russian Army during the First World War, they were not required to serve in the armed forces until the German invasion in 1941. The increased demand for soldiers to defend the country following the invasion led to the growth in both male and female volunteers in the military. Aside from offering medical emergency services to soldiers, a number of Soviet women also served as combatants in the Red Army.
