WomensWork100 at the First World War Centenary Partnership

13 November 2017 | Liz Robertson

Since 2014, events and activities around the globe have connected people with the impact of 1914-1918 on the world, nations, communities and individuals. The role of women is a story that is yet to be fully told.

In 2018 the First World War Centenary Partnership, led by IWM, will present WomensWork100. This international programme of exhibitions, events, activities, creative responses, personal stories and digital resources will recognise and celebrate the working lives of women during the First World War and beyond. Uncover new stories of women who joined the workforce in diverse roles during the First World War, against the backdrop of the campaign for female suffrage, and explore the important IWM Women’s Work Collection, all online at 1914.org.

Sign up to our e-news and be the first to hear when we launch our #WomensWork100 programme of events and activities. Coming soon.

We want more organisations to take part in #WomensWork100, and help tell the story of the working lives of women in the First World War, and beyond. Organisations can register online to get involved. The Centenary Partnership team will be in touch with you shortly.

WomensWork100 is open to members of the First World War Centenary Partnership – find out more about the Partnership
