Resist! Dagenham Women on Strike

Hosted by the LSE Library

Library Education Room (lower ground floor), LSE Library, United Kingdom


Luan Goldie


Writer Luan Goldie reads her short story about the Dagenham Ford Factory women’s workers strike to mark the publication of Resist: Stories of Uprising by Comma Press.

Resist: Stories of Uprising is edited by Ra Page and features 20 acclaimed authors to get under the skin of key moments of British protest, working closely with historians, crowd scientists, and activists. From Boudicea’s revolt against Roman occupation in 45 AD to the protests that followed the Grenfell Tower tragedy in 2017, these stories reimagine each event through the eyes of the people involved, and take in every form of resistance. Each story is followed by an afterword by the specialist who consulted on it, setting the event in a wider, historical context.

The British Library of Political and Economic Science (@LSELibrary) was founded in 1896, a year after the London School of Economics and Political Science. It has been based in the Lionel Robbins Building since 1978 and houses many world class collections, including The Women's Library.
