In the late 1950s and early 1960s, seven young female authors challenged the male status quo and revolutionised women’s writing. Shelagh Delaney, Edna O’Brien, Lynne Reid-Banks, Charlotte Bingham, Nell Dunn, Virginia Ironside and Margaret Forster did not call themselves feminists, but wrote about life as it was for women. In Rebel Writers Celia Brayfield explores the lasting impact of the books written by these extraordinary young writers. Celia is a multi-award winning novelist, biographer, social historian, journalist and critic.
