Many thanks to Jim Lane for donating this and other copies of Gralton to the Left Archive. This edition brings us closer to a full run of the publication.
As noted previously Gralton magazine ran for ten issues from 1982 to 1983. It took its name from James Gralton, “the only person to have been deported from the 26 counties for political activity”.
This edition examines the issue of objectification of women under the heading Images of Oppression: Women as Advertised – an exhibition held at the Grapevine Arts Centre the previous year.
It also considers the French Left, the Tax reform campaign and the making of Partition. It also argues in relation to abortion ‘Let the Women Decide’ in a long piece by Mary Gordon of the Women’s Right to Choose Campaign.
