Sheffield Feminist Archive is a community archive project, working with Sheffield City Archives to ensure that Sheffield’s feminist past and present is documented, preserved and made accessible to all.

Have you got any material relating to feminist activism in Sheffield or the Sheffield women’s liberation movement? Are you involved in feminist activism today and producing materials that document our struggles? Examples might include newsletters, photographs, minutes of meetings, leaflets and posters, to name a few. If so, we’d love to hear from you!

Right now, we’re documenting Sheffield women’s experiences of the pandemic through Women in Lockdown, a digital archive of spoken, written and visual accounts of how local women’s lives have changed since March 2020. Want to contribute? Know someone who might? Learn more about the project.

If you’re interested in sharing your testimony and adding to our pre-existing oral history archive, take a look at our rolling oral history project. If you have physical material you’d like to donate, please reach out to us. Any material donated to Sheffield City Archives will be added to our growing archive documenting feminism, women’s liberation, and the fight for gender equality in Sheffield.

At Sheffield Feminist Archive, our feminism is intersectional and inclusive of all self-defining women, including trans women, and gender-non-conforming folks who feel comfortable in a space that centres the experiences of women.
