Global Women's Strike and Wages for Housework: Archiving 50 years of campaigning...

Our archives now live at the Bishopsgate Institute, London.

Gathering material for this archive is a work in progress. The archive has been launched to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Wages For Housework Campaign. It begins with its first decade:1972-1981. Each subsequent decade will be added to the archive throughout 2022.

Here, below, is a selection of more of our archive material, over the last 50 years, from the International Wages for Housework Campaign (1972), Selma James and the Global Women’s Strike (2000). We will also be posting this as a story via Instagram over the next few months. Follow our instgram story here.
