- "Barbara, the youngest of the handful of
women MPs elected in 1945 was marked out by her slightness and above all
by her flaming red hair" http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-politics-11149803

championed radical causes in the 1930s. That together with her red hair
invited the sobriquet ‘The Red Queen.’ http://blogs.usyd.edu.au/…/the_red_queen_barbara_castle.html
