You Can’t Beat a Woman
YOU CAN’T BEAT A WOMAN
Founding Women’s Refuges: a Heritage Lottery project
The refuge movement… has played a major role in the struggle for gender equality in the UK.
You Can’t Beat a Woman was designed as an urgent oral history project offering a valuable opportunity to salvage and record, through the memories of an ageing group of women active in founding them, the story of how refuges for abused women were established in the East of England and East London in the 1970s and 1980s.
