Women have played a role in major combats throughout history.
In the United States, many women found themselves in the position of having to defend their homes against the British during the Revolutionary War. Some, like Molly Pitcher, fought in battle while others, like American artist Patience Lovell Wright, smuggled secret information to American forces in Philadelphia.
