Scarlet Women #11 (June 1980)

Scarlet Women called itself the official newsletter of Womens Liberation Movement and was published by the Scarlet Women Collective based out of North Shields, Tyne+Wear. This issue (#11) was a special issue based on feminist struggles specifically in Northern Ireland. It was put together by the Belfast Women’s Collective and published as a regular issue in England. The zine contains articles on the Irish feminist past, the effect of British occupation on the lives of NI women, critiques of the state, a personal account of life in Catholic Belfast, abortion in Belfast, Belfast Womens Aid, Caigavon Women’s Group and many more beside. It’s a good read and worth a look for those interested in both issues of the North and of Irish feminist struggles.
