Can you sort your Sairey Gamps from your Florence Nightingales?
Join the myth busters from Crimson Tea Parties and the RCN Library and Archive Service to find out in this online talk and quiz.

We begin with a talk by Susanna Cordner and Stephanie Wood looking at the history of nursing through its fashion. What do nursing uniforms over the years tell us about the image of nursing? How are nurses portrayed on film and TV? And why have nursing costumes appeared in such a range of settings over the years, from fancy dress to haute couture?

The talk is followed by a chance to test your ability to separate fact from fantasy in our Women’s Quiz-tory.
