Feminist Archive South

The Feminist Archive South (FAS) was established in 1978 to document the histories of international feminist social movements active between 1960s-2000s. It includes over 160 metres of diverse archive materials – oral histories, pamphlets, posters, the personal papers of significant women activists, periodicals and other ephemera – that tell the story of how activists struggled for gender equality and realised the increased participation of women in public life. Alongside our partner archive based the University of Leeds, the Feminist Archive North (FAN), we hold one of the most significant collections of women’s activist histories in the UK.
