When the First World War broke out, and a generation of men went off to fight, women emerged from the shadows of their domestic lives. Becoming a visible force in public life, they began to take up essential roles - from transport to policing, munitions to sport, entertainment and even politics. Former BBC Chief News Correspondent and bestselling author Kate Adie charts the seismic move towards equal rights that began a century ago and asks what these women achieved for future generations. Tickets can be booked in person at the Museum shop, online or by phone.
