Telegraph request

The Sunday Telegraph's Stella Magazine is running a special 'Thrift' themed issue in April and wants to include four case studies of women supporting their family through times of extreme financial crisis. They are looking for women from four specific periods:

- The Second World War
- The Miners' Strike in the 70s (a miner's wife)
- Black Monday 1987 (a woman whose husband was a top banker/businessman who lost it all in the crash)
- A mum who has lost a high-flying job in the recent recession.
