As part of Women’s Work 100, join IWM and the First World War Centenary Partnership at IWM London on International Women’s Day to discover the impact of the First World War on the lives of women across the world.
Meet a range of organisations for conversation, hear personal stories of women in the First World War, and ask questions.
What was the female experience of the First World War across the world? What was it like for a woman to enter the workplace for the first time? How was it different in different countries? How did women record their experiences and those of women working alongside them? How do we find out about these women today?
Contributors include Helen Mavin (IWM, Head of Photographs), Claire Brenard (IWM, Curator) Lives of the First World War (IWM), Impressions Gallery, Bradford (No Man’s Land: Women’s Photography and the First World War), British Red Cross Archives, Royal College of Nursing Library & Archives, and Dr Amara Thornton (UCL).
This event is part of IWM's ongoing Conflict Café series which offers a unique opportunity to meet experts in an informal setting to discuss the human impact of conflict and hear personal stories.
Women’s Work 100 is an international programme of exhibitions, events and activities recognising and celebrating the working lives of women during the First World War and beyond.
