Angels of the North-Notable Women of the North East


Angels of the North highlights forty women from the North East, both household names and those less-publicised heroines  those who deserve not to be forgotten.

These forty women cover many fields-the arts, politics, science, women’s rights, business and sheer heroism. All either come from, or have strong links to this unique part of the country. Great stories and great women.  This book is a timely reminder and a celebration of some of our region’s most remarkable and truly inspiring women.
