497) Renée Short

Renée Short (née Gill; 1919 – 2003). British Labour Party politician.

- "... her imperious manner and imposing appearance - red-headed and always heavily made-up - earned her such nicknames as "The Duchess", or "The Matriarch of the Hard Left", among her fellow Labour MPs." https://www.telegraph.co.uk/…/obit…/1419381/Renee-Short.html

- "There is a strong positive correlation between the possession of red hair and female membership of the House of Commons. Barbara Castle, Renée Short and Joan Lestor all adorn the Opposition benches." https://books.google.it/books…
