Sheila Rowbotham in conversation with Sally Alexander

Out of the Archives talk

Influential feminist historian Sheila Rowbotham discusses her involvement in the radical and feminist politics of the 1960s and 1970s; the documentation of women’s history; and the link between ideas and grass roots activism.

She reflects on the development of the Women's Liberation Movement, the Night Cleaners campaign, and the writing of books such as Beyond the Fragments; Women, Resistance and Revolution; Woman’s Consciousness, Man’s World and The Past is Before Us.

Sheila Rowbotham's new biography of Edward Carpenter will be published by Verso in autumn 2008.

Sally Alexander is Professor of Modern History at Goldsmiths, University of London; and founding editor of History Workshop.
