Bristol Women at War will acknowledge the incredible part women played throughout the Great War and examine the primary shift in their workplace roles as they took on jobs that had, until then, previously been performed by men.

Also focusing on the vital and influential roles women participated in for the Red Cross Society and Bristol Inquiry Bureau, it will be a marvellous, worthy tribute of stories about those frequently unsung 'sheroes' who kept things ticking along whilst their loved ones were away. 

 

Bristol Women at War is a free event. You can find out more about this and other events taking place at Bristol Cathedral here 

 

Bristol Cathedral is located at College Green, Bristol, Bristol, BS1 5TJ.  Tel.  0117 9468184
