7pm – 9.30pm
In this talk former Chief Correspondent BBC News and best-selling author, Kate Adie looks at how women contributed to society during the First World War, and the legacy they left for women today.
During the First World War as a generation of men went off to fight, women took up essential roles in British society – from transport to policing, munitions to sport, entertainment, even politics. They became a recognised part of the war machine, acquiring their own rights and new jobs.
Join Kate Adie as she charts the seismic move towards equal rights for women during the First World War, and asks what these women achieved for future generations.
There will be an opportunity to view The First World War Galleries after the talk until 9.30pm
Doors open at 6.30pm and you will be able to purchase refreshments from our bar.
