Dear Friend: Our Mothers and Sisters at People’s History Museum, City Centre, 2 March 2017, free entry - Visit now

Women from the North West have involved themselves in political struggles for a long time, be that the struggle for suffrage, equal wages, or access to birth control. This workshop explores the roles that local women played in the Women’s Liberation Movement (1960s-1980s), the causes that mobilised women across the decades, and the achievements of women such as Lizzie Gent, SuAndi, and Marie Brookfield. Come to the workshop to discover the newly acquisitioned Feminist Webs Archive and write a letter to an inspirational woman.
