"Elizabeth Andrews was, in my view, a truly great Welsh woman" Glenys Kinnock


Elizabeth Andrews was one of the most influential female political activists of the early 20th century.

Born in 1882 she was one of eleven children in a Rhondda mining family. She cared desperately for the suffering she saw around her and vowed to change the lot of miners' wives and mothers in the South Wales valleys. She highlighted their hard, relentless lives as they coped with overcrowded houses, poor sanitation and the tragically high death rate among their children.

A Woman's Work is Never Done, first published in 1957, is a rare first-hand account of a childhood and family life in the Rhondda at the end of the nineteenth century. It describes the pioneering work that led to Andrews becoming the Labour Party's first Women's Organiser for Wales from 1919-1947.

In this new edition, her newspaper articles on poverty and its impact on mining families give a further insight into the struggles of women and the working class for a better life.
