Panhandle plains historical museum brings light to women's roles in WWI
AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) -
The Panhandle Plains Historical Museum invited people to go back in time to the Great War, but from the perspective of women. Several speakers were there to present speeches, teach and tell stories to the crowd explaining nurse's view on WWI and how women's societal roles changed during the process.
"I think that it's real important that we learn that women have always played very important, brave and gallant roles in our history, in this country, rather we are in the military or stayed at home and took care of things here at home, but we were a big part of the war effort," said presenter Dr. Kristin Kuhlmann.
The event began Saturday, March, 11, 2017 from 10 a.m.-1 p.m.. Kuhlmann said this program is part of WWI and American initiatives. These missing stories wouldn't have been told without the help of other organizations and West Texas A&M University.
