The Bachelor Girls, set in 1919, tells the stories of the pioneering generation of women coming of age post-WWI. In an era when girls were raised to be wives and mothers, the calamity of war leaves 2 million more women than men counted in the 1921 UK census. When marriage isn't an option for most, they are forced to find careers, to fight for equality and learn to rely on friendship.
The Bachelor Girls is a YMT UK commission for 2015
