When Mary Macarthur died in 1921, colleagues remarked that she had done more for women workers than any other person in the British labour movement. Historian Cathy Hunt’s newly published biography of this dynamic, charismatic trade union leader is the first full length study to appear for nearly 100 years. In this talk, Cathy will examine the life and times of Macarthur and the continued relevance of her work today.
This talk is part of the Invisible Histories series
