From Petticoats To The Front Line: Discovery Museum


Nowadays, women are a vital part of the army but it wasn’t always this way. The Discovery Museum’s new exhibition From Petticoats To The Front Line explores how attitudes have evolved over the years, from the first female to ever join the army back in the 1700s to women more recently recruited to The Light Dragoons. 

It’s an exhibition that’s sure to fire up your inner feminist!
