The Feminist Library was founded since 1975, and we have existed in many different forms since then. This is who we are today:

And this is what we do:

  • We stand in solidarity with Palestine, and all colonised people.
  • We work collectively on a flat hierarchy.
  • We strive to make Feminist knowledge and history free and accessible to all.
  • We seek to be a free and welcoming space for the community in Peckham, South London, and the world.
  • We promote equity and justice for women and gendered minorities.
  • We provide a safe space for people of all genders.

Please read our community policy here to understand the expectations we have for our community, and what you can expect from us.
