women against pit closures

Can you help preserve the memory of Women Against Pit Closures?

This South Yorkshire based oral history project is a core part of the Sheffield Feminist Archive. We aim to capture the stories and memories of individuals who have been involved in feminist and gender equality activism, past and present, whether in a large or small way. All our volunteer interviewers have been trained in the methods of the Oral History Society. By preserving people’s stories in Sheffield Archives through a recording of each interview, we can ensure future generations will have a better understanding of what we have achieved.  We are keen to interview two or three women who were involved in Women Against Pit Closures or the miners’ strike generally.  Interviews are around an hour in length but vary with every participant.

If you could help us by volunteering to be interviewed, or would like to find out more about the project, please contact me directly by the end of May at
