Finn Mackay has been involved in feminist activism for over twenty years, since leaving home to live at a women’s peace camp as a teenager. With a background in youth and advice work, most recently she set up and managed domestic violence prevention education and anti-bullying work for a London local education authority. In 2004 Finn founded the London Feminist Network and the revived London Reclaim the Night march, which she co-ordinated until beginning PhD studies in 2010. Her PhD is on the British Women’s Liberation Movement from the 1970s to the present day and has made copious use of the materials in the Feminist Archive!
