Talk given by Harrison – in full Roller Derby attire – at Glasgow Women’s Library on 22 March 2012, where she discusses the ideas and hobbies, which developed into her founding of the National Museum of Roller Derby that June.

Bringing together the personal and the political Harrison’s talk offers her own take on the energy and organisational structure of the 1970s Women’s Liberation Movement – its historical links to socialism and its legacy today – in relation to two of her other current interests: reading Marx’s Capital and the burgeoning full-contact, all-female sport of Roller Derby.

The film above only documents the first five minutes. Listen to the full talk here:
