About Women in the Miners’ Strike in Scotland

Talk and discussion run by historians Florence Sutcliffe-Braithwaite and Natalie Thomlinson.

For a year, a team of researchers has been interviewing women from Scotland and other coalfields about their experiences in the miners' strike. At these events:
- You'll find out what we’ve discovered
- Hear from Scottish women in their own words about the strike
- And discuss your stories of the strike and how you think it should be remembered in Scotland

Free, refreshments provided, all welcome
