Well, not really from our files, but from the Rosemary Seymour Collection at the University of Waikato, which is a treasure trove of primary resource material about second-wave feminism/Women’s Liberation Movement in Aotearoa/New Zealand. There’s also an amazing collection of posters, stickers, badges. A teeny tiny selection is below, but meanwhile, we’re looking at ‘making’ some fresh activisty paraphernalia for campaign being planned for later in the year (more on that in future posts) – e.g. badges, stickers, posters, Tees maybe (what else?) and would welcome suggestions or votes for your favourites. Leave a comment or write to use at safeandlegalgmail.com. Maybe these will spark some ideas…oh, and does anyone know what “gynaecomnemonicothanasia” is all about? (If you click on the image, it should load in full screen view):
There are a whole bunch of posts under the From Our Files category.
Rough guess, decoding the cod-greek, ‘gyneco-mnemonic-othananasia’ =>’ killing of memory of women’s names’ -> misogynist obscuration of women’s history?
[my greek, let alone my linguistics, is very rusty…]
Also, thanks for alerting me to some interesting stuff to fossick amongst at my newly acquired uni-for-Masters….
Thanks for that @anarkaytie. Really interesting… And how cool that you’ll be at Waikato. We had a meet there last year, and hope to again in 2013. Good luck with your studies!
