Description

6.30pm

“War, Women and Wounds: Endell Street War Hospital and Beyond” A talk by Kevin Brown, Archivist at Imperial College.

During the Great War, women tended the sick and wounded as doctors, nurses, VADs, and hospital visitors. In this history of service, Endell Street Military Hospital, set up in the old St Giles’ Workhouse, was unique not only in being an official military hospital run by women but also a militantly suffragette hospital. This talk focuses on what made Endell Street so special and looks at the wider context of women in wartime medicine.
