Women in history for one day only

A unique opportunity to listen to some important Welsh historical research on women’s history is being offered in Narberth tomorrow (Saturday).

Llafur - the Welsh People’s History Society - and the Women’s Archive in Wales have come together for a day school to be held at the town’s Bloomfield Centre.

One of Wales’ leaders in women’s history, Professor Deirdre Beddoe, will be amongst the speakers at the event, on Saturday May 17.

With Jenny Sabine and Catrin Edwards, she will be giving an update on the Heritage Lottery-funded project, Voices from the Factory Floor, which is an oral history of women who worked in Welsh factories before 1945.

The day will continue with a paper by Katherine Holden on the History of the British Nanny, and Penny Jones will be introducing extracts from her film, Lavender Lady, based on an oral history projected conducted in Newport, Pembrokeshire.

Rosemary Scadden’s paper on Welsh girls in domestic service between the two world wars and Beth Jenkins’ talk on professions of women during World War 1 will also feature.

The day is open to all, with the buffet lunch, at £8, provided by Narberth’s PlumVanilla café.
