Women of Empire is a unique Australian exhibition that tells the stories of over twenty five women from the First World War using original costume of the era together with fashion accessories.
The exhibition, the only one dedicated solely to the women of the Great War has been travelling in Australia and overseas since 2015 and has been seen by an estimated half-a-million people. For not all First World War heroes wore khaki as this exhibition shows, with stories ranging from the young Sydney lass who disguised herself as a soldier to join the boys at the front, to the famous Australian writer who worked in the kitchen washing dishes.
So many women. So many stories.
