Thu 2 March 2017, 15:00 – 17:00 GMT
Women from the North West have involved themselves in political struggles for a long time, be that the struggle for suffrage, equal wages, or access to birth control. This workshop explores the roles that local women played in the Women’s Liberation Movement (1960s-1980s), the causes that mobilised women across the decades, and the achievements of women such as Lizzie Gent, SuAndi, and Marie Brookfield. Come to the workshop to discover the newly acquisitioned Feminist Webs Archive, learn more about the popular magazines such as Spare Rib and Scarlet Women, how youth workers changed the lives of girls and young women for the better, and write a letter to an inspirational woman.
