East Sussex Women and the First World War – talk at The Keep, Tuesday, 7 March 2017, 5:30 to 6:30pm

An event at The Keep, Brighton

Chris Kempshall: East Sussex Women and the First World War

Whilst fighting raged in Europe and beyond, victory in the First World War was not simply dependent on the actions of those in the trenches. As a ‘Total War’ the actions of those on the home front were crucial in maintaining the war effort.

In this talk, Dr Chris Kempshall will examine the actions of East Sussex’s women during the war, both the work they did and the sacrifices they made between 1914 and 1918. In a time when women were heavily prejudiced against, it will also evaluate whether they were sufficiently rewarded at the conflict’s conclusion.
