The Women

Over the course of the research we aim to bring to light more of the formidable women of Worcestershire who volunteered to organise women to support the nation during World War One, and then continued after 1918, in the early years of women’s enfranchisement, to campaign for better conditions of health, welfare and education for the county’s poor.

As we discover more about each of these women, we will post blogs, images and links, all of which are the building blocks of the published research  intended as the final part of the project.  You can browse these articles about our Formidable Women by clicking on their name in the word cloud on the right, or by following the links below:
