SHONAGH GLEN

“My grandmother and her sisters all worked in the Dundee jute mills. Their mother had been a "half-timer" as a girl - working half the day and allowed to go to school the other half. My grandfather, on the other hand, was blacklisted from the mills after agitating for a strike. I feel lucky to have been steeped in feminist and labour politics all my life, and I'm sure my grandparents would have been very proud that I have been asked to sing The Jute Mill Song for FiLiA attendees. Thank you!”
