Wor Women on the Home Front Exhibition continues!
The Wor Women on the Home From exhibition continues its tour of North East libraries until December.
The project explored the role of North East women during the First World War and the impact the War had on their lives and the lives of their families. Personal anecdotes and reflections inspired by research have been collected and recorded in the form of digital stories, which will be archived as a permanent record of the project. Family stories have been discovered of women painting signal boxes, working in family shops, fundraising in communities and many more!
