Sign the Petition & Join us in a Protest Against the Eviction of an Incompatible Collection of Feminist Research and Women’s Studies
Southwark Council are threatening to evict the Feminist Library on 1st March (the first day of Women’s History Month) from the building on Westminster Bridge Rd, London, that has been its home for 30 years.
The council have given notice that the rent on the Library’s space in the building, which has housed a variety of community groups alongside the Library for the past 30 years, will be raised from £12,000 to £30,000 a year. Council officers are refusing to negotiate – join us in calling upon them to work with us to save the Library.
On 10th February, Southwark Council Cabinet approved a report that ‘highlights the need for a thriving VCS (Voluntary and Community Sector) that mobilises community action and makes best use of community resources, skills, knowledge and spaces’. We cannot understand how treating our organisation in such a way is consistent with approving this report.
