What's On

Bristol Women at War

Munitions Workers at Thrissell Engineering

Bristol Women at War examines the types of war work performed by women during WW1 and charts the shift in the workplace as women took on jobs traditionally performed by men. The exhibition will examine the growth in voluntary work across the City that saw women taking leading and influential roles in organisations like the Bristol Inquiry Bureau and the Red Cross Society, and tell the stories of often unsung ‘sheroes’ including the women who tried to keep families running whilst husbands, sons and brothers were away.

The exhibition is presented as part of the Cathedral's ongoing First World War remembrance We Have Our Lives.
