Join IWM Librarian, Sarah Paterson, for a free research workshop exploring the working lives of women during the First World War. The workshops are open to members of any not-for-profit organisation including community groups and local & family history societies (max. two places per organisation). The workshops will take place at Explore History work space (Level 2), IWM London, from 14:00 to 16:30, on Friday 23 February 2018 and Friday 2 March 2018.

These research workshops have been organised as part of the First World War Centenary Partnership’s WomensWork100 programme. 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.
