Saturday 22nd November, 7.30pm in the Abbey
Christian Women in World War One
To commemorate the centenary of the outbreak of war, we are delighted to welcome the world-renowned journalist and author Kate Adie OBE.
Kate Adie tells the story of the First World War years through the eyes of women, and particularly the impact and importance of Christian Women, and unearths in the telling, fascinating and eye-watering detail of just how hard was the up-hill struggle for admission into the world of men. No longer was it possible to keep them at home, separated and segregated, without rights. They had proved what they could do.
Admission free; retiring collection for the Abbey.
This is the 2014 Ethelflæda Lecture, rescheduled from Saturday 25 October.
