Borders Women and the First World War
In 1916, young women did essential and dangerous war work. They poured into the vast munitions factory at Gretna from all parts of the country. And they also poured out onto the streets, into the pubs and cinemas and, controversially, onto the football fields.
Carlisle and Cumberland found themselves at the forefront of social change. The women were emancipated. They did their bit in the war and got the vote when the war ended.
