Thanks to Unite the Union, we were able to distribute hundreds of Matchgirls Awareness Ribbons for International Women's Day in 2020 and 2021 to recognise the Matchgirls and what they achieved. We are delighted to say that all names of the Strike and Union Committees were read out in Parliament on 11th March 2021:
