The picture above is a detail from a photograph I took of protesters outside the WPUK Women’s Liberation 2020 conference at University College London in January. Their signs made a jolly and colourful welcome for a bunch of joyful, excited feminists meeting to talk about our rights, 50 years after the conference at Ruskin College Oxford that kicked off the Women’s Liberation movement. I was so proud to be an alumna of UCL, which demonstrated that day that, unlike many other British universities, it truly understands what free speech means.
I particularly liked this sign saying “There’s no cis in team”. Extra marks to the maker for decorating it with pretty little hearts. I’ve no idea what it means, but I’m sure it’s very profound.
