Meet the Feminist Library of London!
An autonomous feminist community space run by a collective of volunteers, the Feminist Library supports research, activist and community projects. Originally known as the Women’s Research and Resources Centre (WRRC), the Feminist Library was set up in 1975, at the height of the Women’s Liberation Movement (WLM), a time of intense political campaigning and lively collective organising.
The Library holds a large archive collection of feminist literature, particularly Women’s Liberation Movement materials dating from the late 1960s to the 1990s, and materials from activist mobilisations post-2004. staff will talk about the history of the Library and the unique classification system used to organise the material it holds, as well as plans to digitise our unique and diverse collection, brought forward by the pandemic.
The Feminist Library is an inclusive space that welcomes visitors of any gender and provides an intersectional, non-sectarian space for the exploration of feminism:
