Guide to Women Against Pit Closures collections held by Barnsley Archives & Local Studies

Women Against Pit Closures (W.A.P.C.) was a female-led national, political movement supporting miners, their families and entire communities. In Barnsley, these women fundraised, fed miners and their families, went on the picket lines, marches, organised events, meetings and rallies. This guide is grouped into subject categories for ease of use and will be helpful for both researchers and those with a general interest in the subject.
