Big Smoke had a long chat with Camden’s veteran feminist and author Beatrix Campbell last weekend. We managed to go on talking for far too long so we’ve split the interview into three and in this first part she talks about the relationship between working class and gender politics.




  1. Ellen Russell says:

    You were of course taking the mick here, weren’t you?

    Bea Campbell? Feminist? Gender politics?

    No seriously. Unless you haven’t been paying attention this ‘feminist’ (and I use the term extremely loosely here) is a spent currency.

    Perhaps you would have been better publishing the interview in a religious magazine.

    Or perhaps the interviewer might have thought to ask some of the obvious questions – like what the hell was she doing with the ‘fundies’ in the 1980s and 90s?

  2. Ellen
    I had no relationship to fundamentalist Christians if that’s what you mean. Perhaps you misunderstood the one occasion I appeared on Tv with one such; and I exposed him for being an anti abortion misogynist campaigner whilst he was a senior social services officer.
    Are you one of those people who campaigns against women’s and children’s evidence of abuse? in which case we have nothing to say to each other.
    Beatrix Campbell
