  1. If anyone thinks the mining communities were universally defeated and destroyed by the Thatcher government after the miner’ strike of 1984/85 then think again and go and see this film. Women against Pit Closures have been meeting, organising and supporting women in struggle ever since. This film tell the stories of the women behind these struggles from the Liverpool Dock Strike to the Hillingdon Hospital women strikers who fought for two and half years to get their jobs back, after being unfairly dismissed, and won. It is an inspiring film.
