Scottish Women’s Hospitals Archive Talk with Alan Cumming

Wednesday 14th February

7.30pm – 8.30pm at Museum Nan Eilean FREE

Join Alan Cumming for a talk and presentation about the Scottish Women’s Hospitals with archive material from the National Library of Moving Image and local historical associations in Lewis. Alan has carried out extensive research into the work of women who served with the Scottish Women’s Hospitals which were set up with two very specific aims: firstly, to help the war effort by providing medical assistance and secondly, and equally importantly, to promote the cause of women’s rights and by their involvement in the war, help win those rights.
