Who Do They Think They Are?

[2003]
Lyrics by Cynthia Cockburn
Music by Ros Brown

Cynthia Kay Cockburn, sociologist and peace activist, born 24 July 1934; died last year, 12 September 2019.
In 1993, she was key to establishing WiB in London and was instrumental in sustaining it over decades as an organiser and participant in weekly vigils at the statue of Edith Cavell in Trafalgar Square. Cynthia joined the street choir Raised Voices in 1994. The political choir Raised Voices was another important part of Cynthia’s local political engagement. As well as singing in the choir, she wrote the lyrics to several of the songs that have made up its repertoire.
