Women and the 1984-5 British Miners’ Strike

A talk based on Rosa’s research and unique book collection with images, memories from the books and song. Chesterfield was an important area in the strike and many women from both Chesterfield and the surrounding areas took part, so the talk will have a local flavour detailing events – plus memories of the women involved – recorded in the strike books.
