To the Tate Britain in the past week for the launch event of their spectacular Women in Revolt! exhibition - it's on until April. Not my normal habitat. But hey!
I was invited by Chandan Fraser - that's her above with some photos she took of the Women's Liberation Movement in the early Seventies that feature in the exhibition.
It was the first time we had met - though we've exchanged a lot of emails. I was able to help organise an exhibition in Oxford a couple of years ago of Chandan's photos of the first Women's Liberation conference. Indeed, the exhibition was staged in the venue of that landmark conference - what was once Ruskin College - thanks to the marvellous Four Corners.
Great to meet; and wonderful that Chandan's work is now so widely recognised. Some of her photos have been bought by the National Portrait Gallery, no less.
This is Chandan with her old friend Mica Nava. She lived with Mica and Pepe Nava when she was a photography student (and then known as Sally Fraser) at the London College of Printing.
It was through Mica that she first got involved with the feminist movement. The Tufnell Park women's group was one of the earliest to be established in London.
It was quite a bun fight at the Tate - but I was delighted to see another pioneering feminist, Jo Robinson (one of the Misbehaving gang who took part in the spectacular disruption of the 1970 Miss World televised final) was there with her partner Joel.
Such a fun - and glamorous - evening. And do be sure to get down to the Tate Britain and see the exhibition.
