Remembering Resistance is a project that brings to life the last 100 years of women’s involvement in protests in the North of England. They are seeking women to get involved in two ways:
- They are inviting women who have been involved in protest in the North of England over the last few decades to tell their stories.
- They are also looking for volunteer interviewers to help in the collection of over 100 oral histories of women who have been involved in resistance – training will be given.
The project is organising a series of events where women can give information about themselves and their experiences with protest, both within their communities and within the North of England. One element involves identifying the top 10 most significant sites for women’s protest in the North. To do this, they are mapping all the protests in which women have played a significant role over the last 100 years to tell the story of protest, power, and place in the region.
The events are happening in a variety of places across the North. There will be one at the Working Class Movement Library in Salford on 2 March and others are being planned, including one in Leeds. There is more information at www.rememberingresistance.com
