Women and the First World War
Until 1 October 2015
The First World War offered women the unexpected opportunity to work in fields that had previously been open only to men, proving that they could take on roles other than care-giving.
The display fittingly coincides with the hundredth anniversary of the death of Edith Cavell, who was executed in 1915 for helping Allied soldiers escape from Belgium.
