Bridport Museum

An exhibition exploring the contribution made by Bridport women to the War Effort during the First World War.


The exhibition explores how the World’s first ‘total war’ affected women in Bridport, through the stories of 7 individuals. It explores the challenges they faced and looks at how they had to adapt to maintain a resilient home front.

The exhibition has been researched by a group of Bridport Museum’s volunteers, led by Professor Karen Hunt, Professor Emerita of Modern History at Keele University.
