Women's Lib Movement - Conference March 12-13

Ruskin College in Oxford is hosting a Women's Lib Movement Conference in March.  No one told me!


12-13 March 2010, Ruskin College, Oxford

In 1970, 500 women came together at the first UK Women's Liberation Conference organized at Ruskin College Oxford. The conference built on existing feminist and women's activism and formulated the first four demands of the Women's Liberation Movement. Were you at the original conference? Want to share your story with delegates for the 40th Anniversary conference?

In 2010, 40 years on, the Women's Liberation Movement @ 40 Conference will celebrate and explore the intervening period, feminist work and changes within society. The conference aims to bring together feminist and women's activists across borders (spatial, generational, political and demographic and others) to engage in debate and discussion around contemporary issues.
•Keynote addresses by Shelia Rowbotham, Beatrix Campbell and others on the changing contexts of feminist and women's activism.
•Creative workshops
•Panel sessions on key moments and tactics
•Skills workshops on organizing
•Publishers and organization

The conference is supported by Ruskin College Oxford and the Oxford International Women's Festival .
