Veteran activist Selma James continues to fight for a living wage for mothers and carers

 Big Issue North - UK 16 May 2019

Welfare, wages and women’s rights have been the focus of Selma James’s activism for six decades. Since publishing her seminal 1952 essay, A Woman's Place, she has waged a decades-long campaign to ensure housewives, mothers, workers and carers are paid a living wage. At 85, James is still working towards a caring society by co-ordinating the Global Women’s Strike, an international network fighting to end unpaid labour. She tells Big Issue North about her mission, as well as offering a searing critique of Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and the current state of feminism. (1292 Words) - By Antonia Charlesworth
