Feminist Library Archive

Feminist Library logoADMINISTRATION/BIOGRAPHICAL HISTORY: The Feminist Library was started by a radical women’s collective in 1975. Initially known as the Women’s Research and Resources Centre, it actively collected material on the Women’s Liberation Movement. For over forty years, the Library was managed by a collective of volunteers who jointly make decisions about the running of the organisation. As well as actively collecting and creating collections, the Library is the repository of archives of individuals and organisations connected with the Women's Liberation Movement and the Third-Wave. The Library also provided an inspiring learning and social space for those interested in researching and preserving feminist history.
