Gender@war 1914-1918: women and men to war

This exhibition shows visitors some of the many upheavals ordinary men and women faced during the First World War: its disruptive impact on work and family, the violence they both experienced, their joint contribution to the war effort, and more. Taking an original and comparative approach, it will make you think deeply about the effects of armed conflict on the status of men and women in society.
