IWM announce WomensWork100 Project

  • Womens Work

The Imperial War Museum Centenary Partnership has announced details of its WomensWork100 Project, due to roll out during 2018. 

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 showing how women, often unknowingly, pressed for progress in their working lives, against the backdrop of the struggle for female suffrage.

2018 marks the end of the international commemorations of the First World War. Since 2014, events and activities around the globe have connected people with the impact of 1914-1918: on the world, nations, communities and individuals. The role of women is a story that is yet to be fully told.

IWM are looking for organisations across the Centenary Partnership to take part in #WomensWork100.

As well as offering a unique set of digital resources, they will run a vibrant digital campaign and present Partnership events across the country, from 6 February 2018 to International Women’s Day on 8 March 2018.

If you have stories to share of the working lives of women in the First World War, they want to hear from you.

Register online to get involved, and share your WomensWork100 connection.
