Project Description

The Feminist Library held an evening of poetry and readings based on material drawn from The Feminist Library’s archive and Feminist Library activist, artist and poet Astra Blaug (1927–2015). Astra’s work and poetry was recited and on display alongside work by invited artists. The event was held at South London Gallery and formed a part of Rhyme and Reason music and poetry festival.

The Feminist Library is a large collection of Women’s Liberation literature based off of St George’s Roundabout, SE1. Founded in 1975, the Library is led by a collective of volunteers. The Library has been required to relocate from Westminster Bridge Road and is in search of new premises from which to base its activities.
