Reacting to her death MP of Islington North, Jeremy Corbyn described Maria as a champion of the working class of Glasgow and across the world throughout her life.
My friend and comrade Maria Fyfe passed away this morning – socialist Labour MP from 1987 to 2001, a great fighter for the people, always speaking up for women and a giant of our movement.
Champion of the working class of Glasgow and across the world throughout her life, she continued to teach and inspire young socialists in the Labour movement right up to the end, leading the campaign to raise a statue to the 1915 Glasgow Rent Strike pioneer Mary Barbour in recent years, Jeremy Corbyn said.
Ms Fyfe, who was first elected in 1987 for the Glasgow Maryhill seat, was regarded as a trailblazer for women’s representation in politics and the trade union movement.
