Fighting at the Conference 1978


The Birmingham Women’s Liberation Conference 1978

"The split happened in Birmingham at the between the radical , the dyke arm, and the , the political arm. One of the main beliefs of the radical was that you shouldn’t be involved with men in or political activity, anything to do with that, they were and the thought that was nonsense, you were living in a patriarchal society so you had to go along with that and work within it to change it. At the Birmingham conference there was a big row with people fighting and the big split up occurred. It weakened the movement and separatists left even though there was still a movement. They were the ones doing all the graffiti disfiguring advertisements around the city. We called them the ‘Rad Rev Fems’”.
