Leicester: Newarke Houses Museum and Gardens - Sunday from 2pm
The efforts of the Women of the Great War have long been credited as a significant reason for the winning of the female vote.
With the political landscape of the past 12 months being at the forefront of everyones mind, it's hard to imagine a time where half the population were denied the freedom of expression or political opinion.
Hosted by Cynthia Brown, this talk will look at the experiences and contributions of women to the efforts of the first world war, and the effect those efforts had in later years.
The talk will focus on the wartime roles of women in the home and in local industries, as wives and widows of men in the forces, and on their own account in the Women’s Land Army and other wartime services.
Refreshments will be available, booking is essential.
