Afternoon Poems: Women and War
Sun 12 March 2017, 14:00 – 15:00 GMT
The Whitehall memorial dedicated to the Women of World War II represents the familiar narrative of women performing their heroic duty throughout the devastation of war. This afternoon of poetry goes beyond ‘keep calm and carry on’ to the personal and psychological battles of workers, wives, mothers, Suffragettes and objectors.
