Where There’s Muck, There’s Bras: Lost Stories of the Amazing Women of the North

Once there were queens in the North – warrior women, leaders, fighters, diplomats, rulers. We may have forgotten their names, but a legacy remains: in the land, in our voices, in the stories we tell and the lives we lead.

 

From rebels to writers, athletes to astronauts, join Kate Fox as she takes us on a sharp, funny and eye-opening journey through the lives of some extraordinary women whose achievements have too long been hidden. Whether it’s Hildas in headscarves or Nanas with banners, these are women with something to say.

 

From Cartimandua, forgotten Iron Age queen, to Woodbine-smoking football player Lily Parr, Kate with her trademark wit and sense of fun, shows how these astonishing trailblazers laid the ground for modern stars from Victoria Wood to Little Mix, Nicola Adams to Lubaina Himid.

 

Enlightening, inimitable and a call to arms, Where there’s Muck, there’s Bras shows us it’s time to rediscover our hidden heroes.
