The Role Of Women In The First World War - Talk By Emma Shelley At Warminster Library - Free Admission


The Role Of Women In The First World War
a talk by Emma Shelley
at
Warminster Library,
Three Horseshoes Walk,
Warminster, BA12 9BT
on
Friday 26th May 2017
7.00 p.m.

Free event.

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 mensfolk 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? In this talk, Emma looks
at some of the roles played by women in
the First World War and the questions
these roles both asked and answered.
