In this talk, Community Librarian Rachel Ridealgh explores material from Norfolk Heritage Centre’s ephemera collection that looks at how women have demanded freedom from control and violence, and autonomy over their own bodies. Discover more about how local women became involved in campaigns for equality during the 20th century, both locally and nationally. This talk was recorded from a live Zoom event in January 2021.
This recording is inspired by the British Library’s "Unfinished Business: The Fight for Women’s Rights" exhibition, which explores how feminist activism in the UK today has its roots in the complex history of women’s rights.
