Welcome to Sisterhood and After, the first major oral history project documenting the memories of the women who powered the women's liberation movement.
- Sisterhood and After: The Women's Liberation Oral History Project
- Funded by the Leverhulme Trust
- Partners: The University of Sussex, The British Library, The Women's Library
- Listen to extracts from the oral histories on the Women's Library blog
From Spare Rib to Greenham, Southall Black Sisters to the Northern Ireland Women's Right's Movement, the generation of women who powered the Movement are mostly now in their 60s and 70s. This three year project aims to use oral history interviews to capture and analyse the memories of these women. We will use these interviews in conjunction with a range of other primary and secondary material to explore the legacy of the crucial efforts of these women in bringing about social and political change. The project will be the first to publicly archive a comprehensive collection of interviews with this generation of feminists. As well as producing academic outputs and archiving oral history interviews, the research will be made available for use by researchers of all ages via an interactive learning website about the Movement.
