Tess Little

BA, MPhil
Examination Fellow since 2014
My primary area of research is the formation of the Women’s Liberation movement in Britain, France and America from the late 1960s to the early 1970s. I’m currently working on my DPhil, which will map links between activists in the three countries to understand whether, and how, second wave feminism was transnational. Hence I am also interested in the place of women within other protest movements, from the 1968 student protests to factory occupations and the Civil Rights movement. More broadly, my research interests span Modern Europe, particularly postwar politics, culture and society, and often focusing on women’s history.
