We'll give you Boudica but we bet that's your lot! ---- CLASS WAR has discovered the remarkable histories of three revolutionary working class women who played major roles at pivotal moments in our history. ---- 1. CHARLOTTE GARDINER was the black woman who was seen by several witnesses leading the mob's attack on Newgate prison in June 1780 during the Gordon Riots. The Gordon Riots were the most serious insurrection of the 18th century and the opportunity for every servant to rise up and take their bosses property then burn his house down. Charlotte is later seen urging on a mob of 'tripemen' to burn houses and loot them in Coleman Street before adopting a too prominent role ' hurrah my lads that's the way' and urging others by example. ---- She was arrested, said nothing at her trial and was executed on June 11th 1780 on Tower Hill. That is all we know of our comrade.
