1975–79 Feministo: The Women's Postal Art Event

“At the beginning of 1975 a group of women all over the Midlands and South of England gradually started sending each other small art-works through the Post […] ‘We are trying, I think, to unite apparently disparate aspects— the private, domestic and personal with political and social understanding. We have few physical resources which is reflected in the art-works; many of them use old packaging, clothing; we recycle lots of things.’”
