Tues 22 October 6-30-9pm, Cradley Heath – Friends of the Women Chainmakers present an evening with historian and author Cathy Hunt as she launches her wonderful new biography. Cathy uncovers the previously unreported history of the fascinating woman that was Mary Macarthur and her pivotal role in the improving the lives of British women. Cathy seeks to understand what motivated this extraordinary individual and why she chose the path that she did, particularly at a time when it was still far from common for a middle-class woman to appear on public platforms. There will be a chance to meet Cathy and to buy a copy signed by the author herself.
