Join the Anzac Memorial for a special series of Sydney Open talks on Sunday, 6 November presented by the Memorial’s curatorial staff. 

In this talk, using objects from the Anzac Memorial’s collection, Dr Catie Gilchrist will examine how women’s wartime service has changed and evolved. From the nurses who went overseas during the Great War, to all the women who donned a uniform and served on the home front during the Second World War and to their more recent involvement in peacekeeping missions in the late twentieth century, women have always played an important role in times of war.

Talk by Dr Catie Gilchrist, Exhibition Research Officer, Anzac Memorial
