    The assasination was the main cause of WW1. He was murdered on his trip to Sarajevo, Austria Hungary. A group called The Black Hand had planned to murder Franz, but it was too crowded so they didnt manage to. However a man called Gavrilo Princip was in a lane, when Franz's car reversed towards him. He made two shots. One hit franz's pregnant wife and the other hit Franx in the neck. This had a massive effect on the War because it was the main cause.

They were employed in engirneering, goverment, trams, buses, office workers etc. Many women were also involved in the Red Cross during WW1. They helped with the injurys of troops. The were a massive part of WW1 because without them the businesses that men were employed in would have gone bust if the women had not taken over their jobs.
