by Peter Frost
£11.95 (+£1.50 p&p), 138 pp illustrated ISBN 978-1-907464-04-1. This books provides a selection of Peter Frost’s Morning Star columns on female heroes – and the occasional villain. Frosty began writing for the world’s only English-language socialist daily paper in 2012, soon covering those figures ignored – or more often censored - by most political history. Stars from the arts like Marilyn Monroe, Sue Townsend and Lauren Bacall sit proudly alongside suffragette heroes and the overlooked women who helped Britain win the war against fascism or played a crucial role in the Easter Rising a century ago.
