One of the most respected journalists in the UK is coming to the Ulster Museum.

Kate Adie will be giving a free lecture about women and the First World War, as part of the museum's 'Remembering 1916' programme.

The lunchtime lecture called 'Fighting on the Home Front: the Legacy of Women in World War One' will take place on Tuesday at 1pm.

The journalist will be speaking about the importance of women during the First World War and how their experiences continue to affect women today.

Ms Adie will also discuss how women moved away from their domestic roles and gained independence through their own incomes and right to vote in 1918.

One of the best-known faces on television, Ms Adie is a former BBC chief news correspondent. She also reported on Northern Ireland during the Troubles and covered the referendum to ratify the Good Friday Agreement.

Tickets to the lecture are free and can be reserved on the Ulster Museum website or by calling the museum.
