We would like to invite you to special event at the library. This is an illustrated talk from Chris Coates. She was librarian of the Trades Union Congress and has written on various aspects of women's and trade union history. Chris will show photos and documents to detail the situation of working women in the period leading up to the First World War, the political and economic changes it brought to their lives, and what happened in the aftermath of the War. More information is on the poster below.
This is a free event, but donations to help support the library will be very welcome.
