Shrew: Women's Liberation Workshop (October) £10.00

A4 size, opens out to large-format, four-page paper. No year of publication given, just 'October'. Each issue of Shrew was produced by a different group of the Women's Liberation Workshop. UK Women's Liberation was a feminist movement which emerged with force in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Women's movements had been a force for change since the suffragist and suffragette movements of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. But this new wave gained great prominence through different forms of direct action and debate. The movement was built around networks of local women's groups' national conferences where representatives from local groups could meet for strategic discussion. The movement established networks for support, analysed women's roles and relationships in society and defined a set of demands for the social and economic equality for women. Over 27 and 28 February and 1 March 1970 women's groups from around the country met at the first National Women's Liberation Conference at Ruskin College, Oxford to discuss the challenges facing women and the liberation movement and to work out a series of demands. Later in 1970 the newly formed Women's National Co-ordinating Committee announced the resulting four basic demands: equal pay, equal education and job opportunities, free contraception and abortion on demand, free 24-hour nurseries. The movement's demands were printed on banners and on a petition handed to the prime minister on 6 March 1971 when 4000 marched through London on the movement's First International Women's Day march. The London Women's Liberation Workshop was formed in 1969. In its first year it began to publish its newsletter Shrew.
