Vi Subversa, the last of the suffragettes

For us folks at Radio Days who locate ourselves paradigmatically in the years 1870 to 1939, this post is bound to seem way outside of our usual sphere of interest.  But having spent so many weeks preparing, then performing, the commemorative Rise Up, Women! event at Brompton Cemetery I think it absolutely fitting that we finally also pay tribute to more contemporary voices.

Vi Subversa died two years ago at the grand old age of 80, still performing to the last, still politically engaged to the end.
