Description

The Women who went to War- A Great Adventure presented by Alan Cumming.

"Good lady go home and sit still" was the response from the war to Dr Elise Inglis' request for women doctors and surgeons to serve in front line hospitals.

The story of Dr Elsie Inglis and her colleagues’ contribution throughout the war is told by Alan Cumming, from Cumbernauld, who uncovered a memorial to the women on a trip to watch football in Belgrade, Serbia. Join us to hear more about their extraordinary story. Alan presents in film his own journey to tell this fantastic story.

The Women Who Went to War- A Great Adventure is a documentary and will form part of the evening's talk.
