A talk and exhibition as part of the Professorial Lecture Series
World War 1 enabled a number of Worcestershire women to develop their skills and spheres of influence through voluntary work and prepared them to use their newlyacquired vote in 1918. This talk and exhibition, by University of Worcester lecturer Professor Maggie Andrews, explores the legacy of World War 1 for women such as Lady Isabelle Margesson, Mrs Hooper, Mary Pakington and Mrs Rusher who became Justices of the Peace, ran women’s organisations, wrote plays or campaigned for improvements in maternal and child welfare in the inter-war years.
Light refreshments are provided at the start of the event.
Free but booking is recommended. Book via http://www.thehiveworcester.org/events.html
