Women in Revolt! Mini-series: 1. Ferocious and Magnificent

A 6-part mini-series exploring art, activism and the women's movement in the UK in the 1970s and 80s.

In this episode, Curator Linsey Young journeys to the start of the Women's Liberation Movement and hears from women who were making work in the early 1970s. Joined by artists, makers and activists, she explores how this generation came together to demand change and create new spaces to share their art. From flour bombs to fly-posted propaganda, gallery installations to crocheted postal art, these women and their work forged a path for future generations.

Featuring Margaret Harrison, members of See Red Women’s Workshop (Pru Stevenson, Suzy Mackie and Anne Robinson), Su Richardson and Stella Dadzie.
