The First World War was a watershed for women, especially in relation to new employment and enhanced voting opportunities. Women and the First World War travelling exhibition created by The Somme Museum to commemorate women's role in the First World War will be on display later in 2022. The exhibition will explain the important roles which women undertook after the men of Ulster volunteered for war and left to fight. The exhibition tells the story of women at the home front, how traditional feminine roles would finally be valued, given recognition from the old Victorian rigid society, women at the front line, stories of famous women of the era and the suffragette movement.
