Oral History Project

Our oral history project is at the heart of Sheffield Feminist Archive, and we’ve recorded the stories of more than fifty feminists and women since we started in 2015. We aim to capture the stories and memories of individuals and collectives who have been involved in feminist and gender equality activism in Sheffield, however large or small, past and present. Find out about some of the individuals who have shared their stories with us so far here.

All of our volunteer interviewers receive Oral History Society training, and we’re very approachable! Interviews can be conducted in person or remotely, at a time and place that works for you.

Interview recordings are stored by Sheffield City Archives to ensure that they’re preserved and kept accessible in the long term.  They form an invaluable resource, both for the city and nationally, helping to document the struggle for gender equality.
