Abstract:

In 1914 women all over Europe were experiencing the impact of a war that reached into every corner of people's lives. In Britain, war came to the Home Front and in doing so ushered in a seismic shift in the lives of women far from the front line of battle, and this fascinating programme is filled with examples of women from all walks of life, every class and every corner of Britain, and their contributions to the war effort â€" in the factories, the banks, pulpits and even football pitches. This is their story and shows how, ultimately, victory lay not just in leaving the traditional confines of their lives behind and shouldering responsibility as never before, but culminated in women gaining the vote. The Enfranchisement Bill passed on 6 February 1918 can be attributed to Britain's wartime women fighting on the Home Front.
