#Empowered ~ Lillian Bilocca

This week’s #Empowered woman is the amazing Lillian Bilocca!

Her newest work is about Lillian Bilocca, who became famous after trying to stop a trawler leaving port in Hull in 1968 to campaign for safety at sea.

She was a fishwife, and after three ships and 53 lives had just been lost and emotions were high.

She had had enough. She tried to board under-manned ships to prevent them from departing and took a petition with 10,000 signatures to the government.

For their efforts, she and her fellow "headscarf revolutionaries" were met with disdain, misogyny and even death threats by some Hull men and trawler owners. She was blacklisted and never worked in the fishing industry again.

But the campaign worked. The law was changed, and lives were undoubtedly saved!

She's is now becoming the main character in a play written by Maxine Peake – another amazing woman writing plays about fearless women who overcame the odds in a man's world!
