The Woman’s Land Army of America (WLAA) was an organization that began as an effort to alleviate the farm labor and food shortages that the United States was facing during World War I. This organization, formed and run entirely by women, recruited and trained female volunteers to work the fields at a time when male farmhands were scarce. These women, known as farmerettes, made a significant contribution to the war effort and helped to ensure that the American nation and its men fighting in Europe were well fed.
