"Well-bred and conventional ladies": The National Council of Women and Voluntary Action in UK, 1895-1939

About this Event

On 19 April 2021, Professor Pat Thane will give a talk entitled "Well-bred and conventional ladies": The National Council of Women and Voluntary Action in UK, 1895-1939. This talk will explore the early years of the National Council of Women, which was set up in the 1890s to support women voluntary workers and then became active in ever more fields as it grew.

Professor Thane is a Visiting Professor in History at Birkbeck College, University of London. She has published extensively on 20th century British social and political history including aspects of social policy, gender relations and the history of the labour movement. Her research focuses upon inequalities and social policy in Britain, c. 1900 to the present, especially age, gender, poverty. Her recent publication, Divided Kingdom: A History of Britain, 1900 to the Present (Cambridge: CUP, 2018), draws many of these themes together into a comprehensive survey of British history since the 1900s.
