Real experiences of women in the army

This event was co-produced by Culture& alumna, Carine Harmand.

At their first ever late opening, the National Army Museum will explore how feminism has affected the armed forces. Discover a range of opinions and share your own.

100 years ago, women were able to join the army for the first time. In 2016, the ban on women in combat roles was lifted. To what extent can these developments for women in the army be attributed to feminism?

This late will explore a wide range of views, discussing real-life experiences of women in the army, and tracking the development of feminist thought alongside developments for women in the army.
