Guest Lecture: They Did Everything But Go To Sea - Women's History Month

Saturday March 17, 2018

Times: 6 p.m.

Join us as we commemorate Women's History Month at the National Museum of the American Sailor at 6:00pm on March 17, 2018! The museum will be hosting a special lecture about the crucial role of Navy female yeomen during World War I. This lecture will be presented by Naval History and Heritage Command Historian, Dr. Regina Akers. The Yeoman rating, which involves administrative and clerical duties, was the first permanent position open to women. During World War I, large numbers of women were recruited into jobs vacated by men who had gone to fight in the war. Dr. Akers will explain some of the sacrifices and adversities women had to endure during these times. This lecture will be followed by a short question-and-answer session.
