 “Women In The First World War” by Emma Shelley

Wednesday 9 November, 2pm (Pewsey Library)

This talk focuses on the contribution of women during the period 1914-1918; not only in the household but also how they began to flex their muscles in the theatre of war.

As their menfolk left them to join the frontlines, how did women change their own behaviour to fill the void? What new skills did they have to learn, pressures did they face, and lessons did they take from it? What price did women pay for the war raging in Europe, and what legacy did it leave?

Emma looks at some of the roles played by women in the First World War and the questions these roles both asked and answered.
