Beyond the Fragments: Working Papers

Scope and Content

The folders contain documents relating to the pamphlet and book 'Beyond the Fragments', including correspondence, but much of the material concerns the organisation of a Beyond the Fragments Day Event in Leeds on 30 Aug 1980, and other activities of various 'Beyond the Fragments Groups'. There are also flyers for events in Hackney including 'Fragments' meetings; detailed manuscript notes by Rowbotham on Chapters 1-5 of 'Stephen's' book, and an unsigned typescript 'The Long and Winding Roads' by Karen Margolis (19 pp), about the development of the women's movement . [This was subsequently published as 'The Long and Winding Roads (Reflections on Beyond the Fragments)' by Karen Margolis, Feminist Review, No. 5 (1980), pp. 89-102].

Three issues of 'The Halewood Worker', a newsletter for workers at the Ford Halewood plant (issue 1, Christmas Special 1980, and Easter Edition 1981) and a copy of 'Peace News' for July 1980 have been removed from the folder.
