An archive about the history of oppressed women in The Netherlands and their radical activism through a designers view. The publication starts with an introduction about archiving with an essay by Sigmund Freud, A note upon the ‘Mystic Writing-Pad. Followed by the First Feminist Wave, Provo and May ‘68. It was a revolutionary time, which set the stage for a more free way of protesting in The Netherlands. The actions during the Second Feminist Wave were more playful with a lot of humour in it as well.
The publication consists of designs and photos collected from different institutes, such as Atria, IISG, Anefo and ANP, and conversations with feminist Nel Willekens and illustrator Anna June van Duijn.
