Bernadette Hyland  will be giving talk about her book Northern ReSisters : conversations with radical women on Wednesday 20th January, 2pm,  at Tameside  History  Club. The event is free.

In the book Bernadette speaks to nine women  from the north west  who have been active in radical  movements over the pasty forty years, including trade unionism, Women’s Liberation, radical  bookselling,  anti-racism, the peace movement, Ireland and Palestine. Bernadette says: “In this book I ask the question; what does it mean to be an activist; how does it affect your life and how do people keep going at a time of increasing attacks on all the aspects of this society that has made it a decent place for people to live?
