Anne Williams (activist) – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Editor Note: Anne Williams (6 February 1951 – 18 April 2013) A tireless campaigner for the victims of the Hillsborough disaster of 1989, in which 96 Liverpool football fans died . Anne’s’ relentless mission to reveal the truth over Hillsborough was finally recognised at the 2013 BBC Sports Personality of the Year ……

(The ‘iron ladies’ reference here in Emdad’s haiku is plural and two-fold here, referring to both Anne’s solid persistence for truth to ‘out’ and the notorious Margaret Thatcher nicknamed the Iron Lady. )
