What are we reading? 

Out of the revolutionary struggles of the 1960s burst the Women’s Liberation movement. Although many of the original demands have still not been won this creative movement has had a lasting impact on feminism and women’s lives today. As feminism enjoys a resurgence what can we learn from “second wave” feminism and the women’s liberation movement?
 
• Why did the women’s liberation movement emerge when it did? • What contributed to the disintegration of the movement? • What do we think of the demands raised by the women’s movement? • Would socialist feminists have similar demands today?

We welcome everyone to join us for discussion – the group is open to people of all genders and none. If you need childcare or other support get in touch and we can discuss what would be best. Bring food and snacks to share.

Please email women@workersiberty.org  or call 07883 520 852 for anything else you wish to know! Facebook event here.
