NO PETTICOATS HERE: STORIES OF FIRST WORLD WAR WOMEN THROUGH SONG

 

Award winning singer, songwriter and musician Louise Jordan joins us at The Good Life Experience in September to tell the stories -through song- of inspirational women who challenged expectations in World War II. From the woman who dressed as a soldier on the Western Front to the women football players banned by the FA, the ambulance drivers running the gauntlet of enemy fire in Flanders and the so-called ‘surplus million’ single women. Inspirational women, working in a time of conflict, leaving a legacy. These are remarkable stories, meticulously researched and told compellingly through song. Don't miss this.
