The Modern Records Centre's collections include some newsletters and journals produced by women's liberation and feminist groups during the 1970s and 1980s, some of which are highlighted through a 'ready-made' search of the catalogue. These can include a mix of articles / opinion pieces, poetry and information about political, social and cultural events.
The MRC also has a range of material relating to the women-only anti-nuclear peace camp at Greenham Common (established in 1981 and finally dismantled in 2000) - a search for 'Greenham' in our online catalogue will identify some of the relevant material.
The newsletters contain information about campaigns and organisation, and notices of meetings, social events, etc.
