Illustrated Historical and Heritage Talks at Grayston Unity: Some Halifax Women’s Lives 100 Years Ago

Price: £5.00

Event description


What was life like for women early in the 20th Century?  Very different indeed than it is today; few had serious job prospects, many had little education, and none could vote.  David takes a look at the lives of women working in local mills, and ‘in service’ in Calderdale. He also relates the stories of three Halifax Suffragettes, before considering how events of The Great War brought eventual change.

Tickets £5 plus handling fee.
