Course Description

We study domestic, working and social life, including women’s occupations, during World War One; followed by the impact, after-effects and life changes during the inter-war years - such as growth of the suburbs and cultural change.

We then examine life for women during World War Two: their occupations and coping with rationing and shortages while at the same time looking after home and family.

Half term is 24th - 28th October.
