No Petticoats Here, performed by Louise Jordan

Stories of First World War women through song
Award winning singer, songwriter and musician Louise Jordan shares the stories of inspirational women who challenged expectations through original song and storytelling. From the woman who dressed as a soldier on the Western Front to the women football players banned by the FA, the ambulance drivers running the gauntlet of enemy fire in Flanders and the so-called ‘surplus million’ single women.
