This year marks 50 years since the first national Women’s Liberation Movement conference took place, at Ruskin College, Oxford. The conference drew up four basic demands: equal pay for equal work; equal education opportunities; free contraception and abortion on demand, and free childcare. There have been some developments but, 50 years on, women are still waiting.
Women’s Voice has been marking the anniversary with posters now on display along Hastings seafront from the town centre as far and beyond London Road, St Leonards. They’re on display for two weeks from 15 August. Do get down and have a look if you have the chance. Take photos and circulate them and get in touch if you have any comments about what women have achieved in the last 50 years and what still needs to be done.
