Performed by stand-up poet Kate Fox; a comic and thought-provoking show about the real Northern Powerhouse, Northern Women – the sung and the unsung!
This funny, gently subversive performance unearths the hidden history of the writers, scientists, sportswomen, politicians, protestors, musicians, innovators, activists and other heroines who represent the grit, determination and spirit of the North’s women.
Women you might have heard of include: Britain’s first astronaut Helen Sharman, the first female speaker of the House of Commons Betty Boothroyd, and the inimitable music hall star Hylda Baker. Women you may not have heard of include: Liverpool’s Hilda James who introduced the front crawl to the UK, Lilian Bader, one of the first black women in the RAF, and “Red Ellen” Wilkinson MP who led the Jarrow March!
In this hilarious and provocative show, BBC Radio 4 regular, Kate Fox asks who gets remembered and why (and why not)!
