Format: Paperback
I really enjoyed this. I found it randomly at a book sale for 50p and I'm so glad I did. A book written about the General strike in the 1920s by a woman who was there (who later went on to become and MP and serve in the cabinet). This was really great. It was political and funny. There was a lot in here about socialism, the miner's strikes, how the first world war affected people and how when they came back from it they felt like they deserved better. The book was an interesting look at both the miners and the working class and the dynamics within socialism at the time for the people that were trying to help them, and those who were rich and just couldn't understand what was going on.

There was also a really strong element of women's history to this book. The main character was an independent working class woman who was working as an organiser but the man who had fallen in love with her wanted her to give up her work. There was honest portrayal of the conflict that women had at that time between work, political work and families. There was even talk of birth control and how the miner's wives wanted birth control, how one of them had a daughter who'd accidently killed herself in an attempt to abort. How they were being refused birth control due to the catholic's religious objections which they thought was unfair for the rest of them.

And on top of all the fascinating gender and socialist history there was also a very dry humour. The characters were able to make fun of themselves and were witty and funny (as you'd expect from a book written in the 20s). I'm really glad I read this
