Barking and Dagenham’s Women’s Anthem | OBLive

Barking and Dagenham’s Women’s Anthem is part of the borough’s HerStory celebrations, marking 100 years since some women first got the vote. The anthem was written by folk artist Lucy Ward and Choral Activist Kirsty Martin, and inspired by women from the borough, past and present.
