Battleaxe: The New Labour Movement Paper for Women (1986-?)


United Kingdom
51° 30' 0.5472" N, 0° 7' 34.4496" W

"We are a group of women in the Labour Movement fighting for Womens Liberation and Socialism. We see the two as inseparable. Women are not going to be liberated by an act of parliament, although this does not mean we do not fight to elect a Labour government committed to equal rights for women. But we do not think this is the way women will have true liberation, nor do we believe that the working class is white, heterosexual and male.

We cannot expect male members of parliament nor for that matter male revolutionaries to give us liberation.

Leeds Animation Workshop is a not-for-profit, cooperative company, which produces and distributes animated films and films on social and educational issues.

The organisation began in 1976 as a group of women friends who came together to make a film about the need for pre-school childcare. After completing WHO NEEDS NURSERIES? - WE DO! the group was formally established in 1978 as Leeds Animation Workshop. Since the mid-1980's the Workshop has been run by five women, who between them carry out all stages of the production process, from initial research to final distribution.
