Bernadette Hyland interviews nine women from the North of England (including our own Mandy!) who have been active in some of the most important political campaigns of the last forty years, including trade unionism, Women's Liberation, anti-racism, the peace movement, Ireland and Palestine.
Bernadette says: "These women have been chosen by me because their stories have gone untold...They are part of the radical tradition of the North, read their stories, be inspired and get involved!" Also includes a number of Bernadette's own articles, including an interview with Bernadette Devlin McAliskey, and discussion with Cathy Crabb, Alice Nutter, Maxine Peake and Sally Wainwright about the "northern writer".
Bernadette Hyland is a writer, researcher and political activist, born in Manchester and following in the footsteps of the rich radical history of the North. Her blog is at lipsticksocialist.wordpress.com
