Last week, the Library had a visit from Debi Withers, one of the women behind the Women’s Liberation Music Archive. Glasgow Women’s Library were delighted to welcome Debi as she consulted material from our archive. The Music and Liberation exhibition, containing material from the Women’s Liberation Music Archive, will be touring the United Kingdom later in the year. The exhibition aims to ‘show how feminists used music as an activist tool to entertain and empower women during the 1970s and 1980s. It brings together for the first time a diverse collection of women’s cultural heritage to inspire and inform contemporary audiences about the politics of music making.’
The Women’s Liberation Music exhibition will be stopping at Cardiff, London and Manchester. Glasgow Women’s Library is delighted to host the exhibition when it makes its Scottish stop in October. Keep an eye on our website for future updates!
