Mrs. B interview question on Women’s Lib movement (MSOH/756(2)_e09)

Interviewer: [00:00:00] Now, you say that your daughter is kind of, er, standing up for herself. How do you feel about the Women’s Liberation movement that sprung up?

Mrs. B: [00:00:11] Well, I’m all for it. The liberation. Yeah, I am. I’m all for it. I wish I had been born in this period.

Interviewer: [00:00:20] Really?

Mrs. B: [00:00:20] I do. Honestly, I think it’s great. And, er, I watch my daughter. She lives down in Telford, but she used to be in the YCL, my daughter, but wasn’t very active. ‘Course she starts courting, and er, the boy that she was courting thought it was a load of nonsense, you know, about politics and that. And, funny enough, she gets married and then they live in different places and they end up down in Telford, the new industrial area and they form a communist group down there. And he stood for the municipal elections, last year, my son in law and he used to think that we was up the wall, it was a load of nonsense.
