Lunch Hour Lectures - Women against pit closures: women in the miners’ strike of 1984–5

1:15 pm - 1:55 pm

The miners’ strike of 1984–5 was able to continue for as long as it did because of a support network run by women in mining communities. They fundraised, fed miners and their families, went on picket lines and spoke in support of the strike. Find out about their politics, and their interactions with feminist supporters.

This event celebrates International Women's Day - 8 March 2017.

Bring your lunch and your curiosity!

Cost: Free of Charge
