Feathers and Pennies - the 1888 Matchgirls and us

July 28, 2021

In this special episode, Simon explores the legacy of the 1888 Matchgirls' strike on union organising, safe working, collective voice and women's emancipation and finds a "golden thread" linking then to now.  The Feathers and Pennnies collection of Matchgirls-inspired poems and prose is available here.  Companion blog here.  Music by Scott Holmes and The Pete Dunhill Choir.  A Makes-You-Think production.
