The Feminist Library is a large collection of Women's Liberation Movement literature based in London. We have been supporting research, activist and community projects since 1975.
In 2015 The Feminist Library celebrates 40 years of archiving and activism. Totally volunteer run, we have created and looked after one of the most important collections of feminist material in all of the UK, and provided an inspiring learning and social space for thousands of people.

Update: Thanks to your support and generosity, and the incredible media exposure of the campaign, we have reached an agreement with the council that will allow us to stay in our current building for a further 6 months, until 30 October 2016. We are currently looking into other spaces and continuing our campaign to find a new home

The Feminist Library is fighting back against its recent eviction threat by organising a Summer Benefit to fundraise for new premises.
Experience the Library anew as artists, writers and musicians perform new and old works in spaces, nooks and crannies.
Events will include a choral installation, one-to-one performances in a lift, and the spectacular launch of the Feminist Library Survival Song.
Award winning novelist Ali Smith will headline the event, appearing to talk about her new book ‘Public Library and Other Stories’.
Playing us out will be Ana da Silva and Gina Birch of the legendary Raincoats!
Donate to our Emergency Fund
In the current climate of austerity, with many community spaces closing, our future is under threat. Due to rent increases the building that has been our home for 30 years is no longer viable. We now need to raise funds to find a new, permanent and secure home.
You can help us achieve this aim by donating to our emergency fund, and helping to secure the future of our collection.
