The Women’s Liberation Movement (WLM) played a key role in bringing
about major social change in late twentieth century Britain. This event
will celebrate women’s liberation in Portsmouth and promote
intergenerational dialogue between women’s liberation feminists of the
1970s and 1980s and younger feminists. This ‘memory day’ will consist of
informal workshops led by witnesses who will tell their stories. Panels
will cover topics such as establishing women’s liberation as a presence
in Portsmouth, local campaigns on women’s aid, abortion rights,
economic struggles and more. Participants are also encouraged to bring
along badges, posters, clothing and any other objects associated with
their involvement in the WLM.
This is a CEISR event supported by University of Portsmouth Women’s Staff Network.
