|Death:||22nd January, 1960|
Elizabeth Andrews was born into a mining family at Hirwaun in the Cynon Valley, Wales. She was one of three women who gave evidence before the Sankey Commission in 1918. As soon as women received the vote, the Labour Party appointed four female organisers, of whom Andrews was one. She campaigned tirelessly for health and education services. One of her great successes was the opening of the first nursery school in Wales in the Rhondda in 1938. In 2004, she came 100th in the on-line poll to find 100 Welsh Heroes with a total of 37 votes. During the Second World War she was appointed liaison officer for the women’s section of the Labour Party in Wales, for numerous ministry committees. In 2006 her book A Woman's Work is Never Done, originally printed in 1952, was reprinted following a revival in her work by Glenys Kinnock.
