She was a passionate unionist and socialist who believed a better world was possible if enough of us fought for it. Her work with pub staff, organizing them into unions and securing better wages and working conditions is inspiring.
Her support for the battered wives movement and her efforts to secure union support for asylum is on record and a source of pride. Her pioneering work with child and adult victims of sexual abuse during her employment with the Royal Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (RSSPCC) has helped hundreds of people.
Her role in the huge fight against Thatcher’s poll tax was crucial to the campaign’s success. Her commitment to Scottish independence and opposition to the toxic Murdoch media empire is unparalleled.
