Many of these files provide visual and aural documentation of CLCBLG, while others appear to relate to contemporaneous feminist media (particularly Outwrite Women's Newspaper).

This series includes many images of feminist, anti-racist, LGBT+, anti-capitalist organising and political struggles in London, in the UK, and across the world; some of these images are annotated and/or related to each other.
