Dear Friend

Dear Friend is a letter writing project that explores the roles women played in all struggles of liberation. Women were involved in causes not their own in a number of ways, and campaigned with, supported, and fought for other people throughout history.

This stretches from Harriet Beecher Stowe and other female abolitionists; to Mary Fiedes and women fighting for voting reform alongside men at Peterloo; to Josephine Butler and the early movement for sexual equality; to Kitty Wilkinson and the fight for sanitation in early industrial cities; to Winifred Holtby and campaigns for racial equality and international and cross-cultural understanding; to Brenda Oakes and campaigns for and support of lgbt people.
