As we mark the centenary of the First World War, those who fought and died in the war will be remembered in many ways. But what about those who followed their consciences and refused to fight? We remember the women who, rather than urge their men to go to war, organised to oppose it.

Speakers: Lesley Orr (feminist historian, Development Worker for Fellowship of Reconciliation Scotland), Brian Larkin (Coordinator of the Edinburgh Peace and Justice Centre)
