From Our Files: Images

15 Feb

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 safeandlegal[at]gmail.com. Maybe these will spark some ideas…oh, and does anyone know what “gynaecomnemonicothanasia” is all about?

    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!
