WOMEN, ORGANISE! We discuss labour and Labour history: what happens to the history of trade unions when we focus on the women who were involved in them? Why does the precariat need to be unionised? And why are we all workers?

  • Here's that tweet we both saw the other day:
  • …and this is the miners’ strike scene from Billy Elliott (2000):
It goes one at a time.
It starts when you care to act.
It starts when you do it again
after they say no.
It starts when you say we
and know who you mean;
and each day you mean
one more.
