About this Event:

Julie Summers tells the remarkable story of the role played by ordinary women in rural communities across Britain during the war, describing it as the WI’s ‘finest hour’. It is a story of how women, held together by the WI, bust logjams, got round bureaucracy and improvised to help the war effort. They completed a major report on evacuation; influenced Government policy on health, education, housing and reconstruction; ran canteens for troops; and cooked for farmworkers.

Summers lives in Oxford and describes herself as a biographer and historian, but most importantly as a story teller.
