Meet the team – Jasmin

Hi, my name is Jasmin and I am the Receptionist and Senior Administrator here at the Women’s Centre.

I’ve worked here for almost 2 years now and I can honestly say that no two days have been the same since I started, and that’s all part of why I love it so much, my job is so varied. I also love working here because the staff team is so supportive and friendly – but the main reason is that I really enjoy helping people and my role is all about being the first point of contact when women visit or telephone the Centre. Sometimes people ring up asking for all manner of things such as ‘can you tell me when my bin is going to be emptied?’ I know I have to hold a lot of information in my head but that’s not one of them!! Signposting then comes into play. I get to meet lots of amazing women every day and it’s my absolute pleasure to help them with information about our courses, activities and services.

Feminist magazine Spare Rib now available online

Spare Rib launched in 1972 and gave important coverage to the emerging Women’s Liberation Movement, until it eventually closed in 1993.

You can now download all 239 editions of the magazine for free via the British Library via this link.

And if you prefer to view them in their original format, remember that we’ve also got most of the back copies – as well as other books and magazines dating back to the 1970 – here in our women’s library.
