Bristol's Feminist Activism

Mon 17 October 2016,

The Bristol Women’s Centre opened in September 1976 at 44 The Grove. Focus for many feminist campaigns, the centre offered pregnancy testing, and advice on legal issues, accommodation, contraception, domestic violence and rape.

Forty Years a Feminist commemorates Bristol’s feminist activism with a panel discussion, the launch of Miriam David’s book Reclaiming Feminism, and a party to celebrate four decades of achievement. Chaired by Helen Taylor, the panel – Liz Bird, Miriam David, Helen Dunmore, Ellen Malos, Pam Trevithick and Jackie West – represents various campaigns and activities within the mid-1970s Bristol Women’s Liberation group.

There will be exhibitions from Feminist Archive South and the University Women’s Theatre Collection.
