Holding the Line: Female Railway Workers in World War Two

Using recorded interviews carried out by the Friends of the National Railway Museum, Susan Major's latest book explores the experiences of women railway workers taken on in wartime. The interviews cover many areas of Britain, but this talk will include some of those working at York station during the bombing raid of 1942. The women interviewed talk about working with men for the first time, doing men's work and the problems of workplaces not designed for women. Susan will also show how working women were portrayed by the railway companies and the media at the time. One not to be missed!
