‘Women, War and Wolf Cubs’ Online Talk by Caroline Pantling.

Following Caroline Pantling’s very successful talk to Chingford Historical Society in August 2020 she returns to give us more scouting history.

As the First World War took hold women’s contributions to Scouting would not only increase but become critical to the survival of the Movement. During these darkest days the Scouts were looking forwards not only launching the Wolf Cubs for 8 – 10 year olds but also challenging ideas what these “Lady Scoutmasters” could achieve. Through the stories of these Scouting pioneers this talk will explore how the role of women developed and challenged the societal norm.

Caroline Pantling is Head of Heritage Services for The Scouts.
