Women of a Red Decade: Women Writers of the Left in the 1930s


Professor Mary Joannou

Women writers of the left made an important contribution to the radical thinking of the day but the extent of their contribution has not been fully recognised. This lecture will discuss the achievement of some of the most politically committed authors whose work shaped and made a difference to the ‘red decade’.  These include Winifred Holtby, Storm Jameson, Sylvia Townsend Warner, Ellen Wilkinson, Virginia Woolf, Vera Brittain, Naomi Mitchison, and Nancy Cunard.

Mary Joannou is Professor of Literary History and Women’s Writing at Anglia Ruskin University.  Her research interests are the women’s suffrage movement, the 1930s, and late Victorian and early twentieth-century writing.  Her publications include “Ladies, Please Don’t Smash These Windows: Women’s Writing, Feminism and Social Change 1918-1938” and “Contemporary Women’s Writing: From the Golden Notebook to the Color Purple”.
