BBWI outing: trip to the Women’s Library

Following Sheila’s fantastic talk at August’s meeting, Susi and Lara went to the Women’s Library to see the exhibition “Cycling to Suffrage”. It was fantastic to see the photos of the ladies cycling, listen to audio clips and chat more with Sheila. Thanks for showing us around, Sheila!

As you may know, the Women’s Library is threatened with closure following budget cuts at London Metropolitan University. It really would be terrible if this amazing resource was closed or had very reduced opening hours.Β  There’s an excellent article on Open Democracy about why the library matters.

For more detail on this, and to keep up to date on the Women’s Library’s fight for survival, read their blog, follow on Twitter at @savetwl, or join Save The Women’s Library on Facebook.


ps, don’t forget BBWI’s third birthday party!Β  Also, craft group meets this Wednesday for spooky, Halloween-themed crafting.
