London Transport Museum: Women's Work

One of a series of exhibition films made for London Transport Museum, bringing the history of Britain’s transport system to a contemporary London audience.
Here we talked to drivers, station landlords and engineers about the role of women on the “home front” during the First World War. We heard about their own experiences of changing attitudes to women in the work place and about the attitudinal barriers many still face. Shot across London - including at Maida Vale – the first Underground station to be “manned” completely by female staff during the war.
A film about pride and progress in the workplace made for the museum's 2014 exhibition "Goodbye Piccadilly – From Home Front to Western Front."
