National Museums NI and Living Legacies, in collaboration with the Imperial War Museum, will explore the breadth of women’s roles in different arenas– from factories and hospitals to homes and churches, representing their political activism, front-line service and home front experiences, against the backdrop of the suffrage movement and greater prominence of women in public life. Hear about the role women played during the First World War locally and the contribution they made across Ireland to the war effort and the struggle for equality.

Speakers include:

  • Katie Childs- Head of Partnerships and Stakeholder Relations, Imperial War Museums
  • Dr. Fionnuala Walsh- Lecturer in History, UCD
  • Dr. Vivienne Pollock- Curator of History, National Museums NI
