Where There's Muck, There's Bras: True Stories of the Amazing Women of the North

by Kate Fox - £9.99  HarperCollins Publishers (2023)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780008472924 | ISBN 10: 0008472920

From rebels to writers, athletes to astronauts, join Kate Fox takes on an entertaining and eye-opening journey through the lives of these extraordinary women whose lives and achievements have too long been hidden.
 
From Cartimandua, the forgotten Iron Age Queen of the North, to Woodbine-smoking football player Lily Parr, Kate with her trademark wit and sense of fun, shows how these astonishing trailblazers laid the ground for modern stars from Victoria Wood to Little Mix. Nicola Adams, Betty Boothroyd and Helen Sharman all have these unsung northern champions to thank for paving their way.
 
Funny, enlightening and a call to arms, it’s perfect for a nation ready to rediscover its hidden heroes.
