The Women’s Library @ LSE was recently acquired from the London Metropolitan University and will re-open on August 1st 2013. The collection covers the changing social and political circumstances in the lives of women from the mid-nineteenth century onwards. David Doughan MBE, who has been a librarian at the Women’s Library (formerly the Fawcett Library) for 23 years, speaks to LSE’s Equality and Diversity Adviser, Asiya Islam, about the continued significance of the library and its role in the late 20th century feminist movement.
