What was the contribution made by Bridport women to the War Effort?
It explores how the World’s first ‘total war’ affected women in Bridport, through the stories of 7 individuals. It explores the challenges they faced and looks at how they had to adapt to maintain a resilient home front.
The exhibition has been researched by a group of Bridport Museum’s volunteers, led by Professor Karen Hunt, Professor Emerita of Modern History at Keele University.
Free entry. Donations are very welcome to help support Bridport Museum’s work as a charity.
This exhibition is generously supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund First World War grants.
