The Role of Women in WW1

Talks - Arts and Culture

Event Description

Life for women changed dramatically during the war because so many men were away fighting. Many women took paid jobs outside the home for the first time. By 1918 there were five million women working in Britain. The money they earned contributed to the family’s budget and earning money made working women more independent. Many enjoyed the companionship of working in a factory, office or shop rather than doing ‘piece work’ at home. This presentation explores the many and varied roles undertaken by women during the War.
