Gender@war 1914-1918 | BELvue
Temporary exhibition

[email protected] 1914-1918

women and men to war

[email protected] 1914-1918 shows visitors some of the many upheavals ordinary men and women faced during the First World War: its disruptive impact on work and family, the violence they both experienced, their joint contribution to the war effort, and more. This richly illustrated exhibition focuses on Germany, Belgium, France and Great Britain. Taking an original and comparative approach, it will make you think deeply about the effects of armed conflict on the status of men and women in society. 

A catalogue and educational tools for teachers are also available.

Organised by the Archive and Research Centre for Women’s History, in collaboration with the BELvue Museum.
