WW2 wasn’t all about the fighting: how did all the mums (and other women) in Scotland help win the war?
Discover what life was really like for women during WW2 in this interactive workshop for Primary 4 and above.
We’ll bring history to life through drama, role play and with exclusive access to brilliant primary source films from the Scottish Screen Archive. Beginning by setting the context of women’s lives in the late 1930s, we’ll focus on the enormous shift in female roles during the war; from being tied by their apron-strings to home and hearth, to working in the factories and tending the land.
Hosted by the amazing Eilidh McAskill, the workshop helps children find out about the new jobs and responsibilities women had to take on while the men (and many women) were away at war. For most it wasn’t just about ‘Make Do And Mend’…
THIS EVENT IS NOW SOLD OUT!
