Northern ReSisters

Issue section:

Bernadette Hyland’s purpose in presenting nine short biographies of radical northern women is to celebrate the struggles and achievements of political activists who might otherwise be overlooked but who “follow in the footsteps of many working class men and women who changed the history of this country”.

She hopes that young women drawn into political activity today will be inspired to get involved in campaigns, so each “conversation” ends with a link to a relevant organisation.

There is also a selection of Hyland’s articles written between 1988 and 2014.

Tony Benn

Hundreds of people came to the see the preview of Tony Benn: Will and Testament in Chesterfield. Many of us had known Tony Benn as our MP and campaigned alongside him. It was very emotional to see him standing in his kitchen, smoking the famous pipe and talking directly to us. These were the thoughts and images he wanted us to remember as he faced the end of his life.
