Welsh Women's History 1900-1918
The voices of women in Wales have largely been absent from its historiography, both as writers of and participators in its history. Publications such as the collection of historical essays Our Mothers' Land, whilst illustrating this imbalance, have laid the foundations for further research. The need to teach women's history as a seperate subject is in itself an acknowledgement of this deficiancy. One reason often cited for the absence of women's history from the school curriculum is a lack of resources. It is this issue that this resource aims to address.
Drawing in the main from the wealth of archive materials at St Fagans National History Museum, this pack is an attempt to present visual, oral and written resources dealing with women's experiences between 1900-1918. It is only a small selection of the materials available but one that we hope will help you reconstruct a picture of the past, and enable you to dwell on the diversity of women's experiences.Values
