International Women's Day - ‘Go Home and Sit Still’, with Ms Chris Short

Date(s): 2 March 2015

Time: 1:00pm-2:30pm

During World War One, when Elsie Inglis offered a 100 bed hospital unit staffed by women to be deployed anywhere in the war zone, she was told to ‘go home and sit still’. 

This talk tells the story of the Scottish Women’s Hospitals and the remarkable women who braved deprivation, disease and war to provide a high standard of care to the wounded in Serbia, Russia and the Western Front.

This talk takes place at Kirkcaldy Museums and Galleries
