The British Library is the national library of the United Kingdom and one of the world’s greatest libraries. Sheila Rowbotham is a historian and writer. She was involved in organising the first national UK Women’s Liberation Movement conference held at Ruskin College, Oxford in 1970, was active in the London Women's Liberation Workshop, and campaigned extensively, including to unionise night cleaners, in the National Abortion Campaign (NAC) and in the National Child Care Campaign. Her influential pamphlet Women's Liberation and the New Politics of 1969 is widely considered to have been the first manifesto for the new movement in Britain.
In this highly evocative and haunting play, British historian and feminist Sheila Rowbotham illuminates the lives and struggles of those who opposed the war. With claustrophobia and anger, the play recounts how Wheeldon's involvement in socialism, suffragism and the anti-war movement did not endear her to the establishment, and in times of growing class antagonism and war how the government needed to create a traitor.
