Talk: Women’s Liberation Movement in the North East – January 2018

WLM

In 1976, women gathered from all around the country in Newcastle, well, Ponteland to be precise, for one of only 10 national Women’s Liberation Movement conferences. 1500 women attended to consider the ‘direction of the WLM’. In this public talk organised by the North East Labour History Society, I drew on my interviews with some of the organisers and attendees as well as archival research to tell the story of how the conference came to Ponteland, why it was significant to the region and the national WLM.

The talk was a reprisal requested by NELH Society after I gave it at their joint symposium in October 2017 with Northumbria University for the NELH Golden Jubilee year.
