A very interesting article in the Guardian by Jonathan Jones, on the significance of school girls protecting a police van during this week's student demos, raised a number of questions about what this all meant. What I was as interested in was how the students, in particular the school kids dressed up for the demo, made themselves a cross between a St Trinian and a 1960 hippy, short skirts and headbands, showing an acute awareness of the cameras.
So this week I thought we would take a look at how dress and fashion has changed over the years for those women who have taken to the streets to protest about the vote, bombs, foxes and student fees.

Mark Power's "The Shipping forcast" seduced Radio 4 listeners with both the images and their familar but mysterious chant-like tags. This is "WIGHT: Northwesterly backing southwesterly 6 or 7, increasing gale 8 for a time. Showers then rain. Good becoming moderate or poor."
