The origins of the Women's Library can be traced back to the suffrage movement and the 1866 women's suffrage petition. 


As well as books and periodicals, it is home to some brilliant archives, including that of the National Federation of Women's' Institutes. As you would expect, the suffrage movement, education and social attitudes are well covered but there is much more such as the large collections of biographies and fascinating autobiographies of WWII Land Girls.
