Women leading the way to equality and justice, Colchester, Saturday, 22. June 2019

Authors Sally Groves and Louise Raw will talk about their books that tell the stories, 100 years apart, of women trade unionists, many of them new immigrants showing men how to organise and win better wages and fairer treatment at work. Sally Groves, was one of the 1976 Trico strikers and her new book tells the story of  their victory. Louise Raw's revolutionary book changed history by showing the "matchwomen" organised themselves and defeated Bryant and May one of the biggest employers in London.
These groups of women are an example to us today of how we successfullt organise and win.
