Third Tuesday: Professor Alison Fell, Striking Women: Women Trade Unionists in France and Britain during and after the First World War

17 August 2021 @ 19:00 - 20:30

This talk will consider why and how women went on strike during the First World War. It will also  explore the longer-term legacies of wartime industrial action, considering in particular some case-studies of French and British working-class women whose initiation into trade unionism during the war led to political careers in the 1920s and 1930s.

Professor Alison Fell is Dean of the School of Histories, Languages and Cultures at Liverpool University
