The archive is usually open two days a week and can be accessed by arrangement.
The Feminist Archive North (FAN) is a fantastically rich and varied resource of material relating to the Women’s Liberation Movement (WLM) from 1969 to the present. Topics include equality of opportunity in education and employment, the women’s peace movement, women’s studies, women and development, and violence against women. The collection is available to be used by all those interested in the struggles and achievements of feminists. The archive is housed in Special Collections, Brotherton Library, University of Leeds where it can be accessed by arrangement. Some of the archives’ resources are available on our website. Our staff resources are limited as FAN is run entirely by volunteers, but we can often arrange outside speakers. Many of us were actively involved in the campaigns and struggles explored in our Learning Journeys.
