'Women strikers on march to Plesseys', 1969

Press cutting from the 'Morning Star' newspaper 12 April, 1969 reporting a strike of women workers at the Plessey factory in Ilford, Essex in support of a wage claim. One woman carries a placard saying "This ain't no petticoat strike dear Barbara". This refers to Barbara Castle and the Ford strike for equal pay in 1968, which the media dubbed a 'petticoat strike'.
