Who we want to interview

We hope to interview women who live or lived in coalfield areas, and who remember the strike of 1984-5.

We are seeking women with strong connections to mining communities - wives of miners, mothers, daughters, women who worked in the industry in any capacity, or women who had a strong connection to the industry and/or the strike through other means.

We're looking for women who both agreed and disagreed with the strike and would ask anyone for whom the strike was part of their life to come forward and contribute.

Interviewing areas 

We are particularly looking for interviewees from five interviewing areas to participate in the research:

  • Kent
  • Yorkshire
  • South Wales
  • Nottinghamshire
  • Scotland
