100 years of the W.I.
United Reformed Church
Lunchtime talk by Maggie Andrews – Professor of Cultural History at Worcester University. The WI is fondly thought of in terms of ‘jam and Jerusalem’, but its roots are intertwined with the women’s suffrage movement and the many campaigns that have sought to articulate the needs of women since the First World War.
Maggie will explore the political and social initiatives that helped define the radical organisation.
