Introduction to week 2

Rebecca Wheatley introduces the theme of women and war.
REBECCA WHEATLEY: Welcome to week two of the 100 Stories. This week, the stories focus on women’s mobilisation both on the home front and on the battlefield. We’ll be speaking with Rae Frances, an expert on women’s mobilisation during war. We’ll show you how to use Red Cross wounded and missing files online, and we’ll be learning more about your local memorials. But first, let’s cross to Bruce on Gallipoli and he’ll introduce this week’s stories.

Watch Rebecca Wheatley introduce the theme of women and war and the issues you’ll explore this week.
