Personal Histories of the Second Wave of Feminism

In 2000-2003, the Feminist Archive South conducted a large oral history project that collected the personal memories of women who were involved in the Women’s Liberation Movement in Bristol.

It was a vital project that means we have the personal memories and voices of important Bristol feminists, such as Pat VT West and Monica Sjoo, captured on tape forever.

For the first time ever on the internet (!) you can download summaries of all the interviews conducted here.

We hope that we will also get permission from people interviewed as part of the Sistershow Revisited exhibition to upload full transcripts of their interviews. Watch this space.
