On Saturday the 23rd November  the Unite Industrial and Community Doncaster Branch held ‘A woman’s part in the trade union movement’ event at The View in Doncaster. Over 20 people attended to listen to Kate Connoly, the author of a book titled ‘Sylvia Pankhurst – Suffragette, Socialist and Scourge of Empire’, and to watch Ellie Harris (Red Ladder) perform the ‘Wrong Un’, a one women suffragette play. A lively debate followed, led by Barbara Jackson (Orgreave Truth and Justice Campaigner) and Unite Community Member Louise Harrison, challenging more women to get involved. More people joined Unite Community on the day and were invited to attend the next branch meeting to make the sentiments of the event a reality.
