Women in the workplace in the 60s and 70s

Hospital nurses and clerk

Are you a woman who worked during the 1960s and 1970s? The BBC is looking for people with stories about this remarkable time when the role of women in the workplace was changing.

The BBC's Kirsty Young is presenting a new series about the British at work. We are looking for women who worked in a wide range of employment. Did you find it hard to get the job you really wanted? Were you given the same opportunities as men? How were you treated at work? And how did the treatment change over the decades?

Perhaps technology affected your time at work. For example, were you there when electronic word-processors replaced manual typewriters? Or when telephone exchanges were first automated?

And what about your family life? Did you get married? Did you have children? How did that affect your career?

We also want to gather stories of the camaraderie and community of the workplace, to hear stories of romance, work days out, long lunches and Christmas parties.

If you would like to tell us stories from your life at work, please do get in touch using the form below:
