About

UCL Women’s Liberation brings together academics and other staff from a range of disciplines whose research addresses pressing social and political issues concerning the status and meaning of women’s rights.

We aim to generate public conversations and collaborations around these issues in the context of contemporary debates on the nature of sex and gender inequalities and the extent to which they are rooted in biology, social structures and individual identities.

The timing of this initiative celebrates fifty years since the first Women’s Liberation conference in the UK in 1970, while recognising the serious challenges still facing women globally today, including violence against women and girls, representation in the media and in politics, sexual harassment, income inequality, and the burden of care work.
