‘“Delicate” and “troublous” questions: women teachers, gender issues and local education politics in south Wales, 1908-1928’ from Dr Sian Rhiannon Williams
Set against the background of the emergence of the feminist National Federation / Union of Women Teachers and the growing dominance of the labour movement in local politics, the lecture focuses on events in Aberdare and Rhondda before and after the First World War. Here, debates over the marriage bar, equal pay and other gender issues fuelled the activism of women teachers and inspired unity, but also exposed divisions and tested loyalties, thus creating tensions which reverberated more widely.
