Hidden histories of a million wartime women by Royal Voluntary Service

A brilliant project by the RVS are looking for crowdfunding – can you help?

The RVS Project

‘Within two years of the outbreak of the Second World War, 1-in-10 women had set aside their own lives to volunteer and help others as members of the Women’s Voluntary Services (WVS). They held the country together working tirelessly on the Home Front, but now they have been forgotten. They modestly refused recognition in their own time and their voices, those of ordinary women from our shared past, have now fallen silent; but you can help us to re-tell their stories of everyday heroism.’
