Event - Women's Liberation in Portsmouth 1968-1990: A Witness Seminar

Saturday 27th June, 10am – 3.45pm
John Pounds Centre: 23 Queen Street, Portsmouth PO1 3HN 
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.
All welcome.
This is a CEISR event supported by University of Portsmouth Women’s Staff Network.
