    Part of Connected Histories of the BBC, 100 Voices reveals the inside story of the BBC and its relationship with the wider world since its inception in 1922. The project, led by the University of Sussex, aims to make accessible the vast collection of interviews the BBC has conducted over the years with its own staff: from senior managers to popular on-screen personalities, pioneering editors of political programmes and influential producers. Material available so far has been curated into several themes including Pioneering Women, People, Nation, Empire, Radio Reinvented, The Birth of TV, Elections and BBC Memories.

    What is a feminist? This site presents an extensive response to that question in the form of a well-curated oral history archive of the lives of British feminists. The fruit of a Leverhulme funded research initiative, the project’s researchers interviewed 60 feminists who were active in the Women’s Liberation movement in the UK in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s.

    The site features interviews with women arranged around a number of themes, including Activism, Equality and Work, Education, Politics and Legislation, Race, Place and Nation, Sex, Love and Friendship, Bodies, minds and spirits, Family and Children, Changing Cultures and the Arts and Who we Were and Who we Are. The audio clips on this site have been extracted from longer interviews which are available in their entirety at the British Library.

    Other resources on the site include Biographies page with profiles of prominent members of the British feminist movement, including academics, writers and broadcasters such as Beatrix Campbell, Sheila Rowbotham and Jenni Murray. An interactive Timeline begins in 1961 and charts the significant social and political events (and legislation) of the times alongside landmark episodes in the women’s movement. The material on this site is a fraction of what was recorded for the project: much more is available at the British Library.
