Sisterhood, socialising, and solidarity during the Women's Liberation Movement.
‘The Personal is Political’ was the key Women’s Liberation Movement slogan that was used in consciousness-raising groups, where women discussed their personal experiences of everyday sexism in their lives.
Through this process, women came to realise that such experiences were not their own individual problem, but were part of women’s systematic oppression which had to be dealt with by collective political action.
This message is very much still alive today through campaigns such as the Everyday Sexism project.
They acknowledged the global nature of many issues affecting women worldwide, and joined together to campaign in solidarity.
The Feminist Library today continues in that same spirit of sisterhood and solidarity, campaigning together, while also sharing fun, inspiration and friendship.
