Early days

Who saw the strike coming, and how did women react when it was announced? Listen to Marjorie Simpson, from Stainforth, South Yorkshire, describing the run-up to the strike. Sisters Lorraine and Linda, from Kent, talk about the anxieties women felt when the strike was announced. In South Wales, Kay Case was a canteen worker at Deep Navigation colliery, and soon out on strike herself. And Kay Sutcliffe, in Kent, was involved in activism right from the first days of the strike.
