This conclusion presents some closing thoughts on the concepts discussed in the preceding chapters of this book. The book shows that there was a lively cadre of feminists, who aligned themselves with the women's liberation movement (WLM). It also shows that women's liberation had a much wider appeal, influencing women in many parts of Britain. The book asserts that the fragmentation of the movement cannot be entirely explained by the emergence of political divisions and seeks a reassessment of the reasons given for fragmentation. It demonstrates that more generally many feminist activists wanted to move beyond theorising and towards practical action. The book outlines some of the major debates and discussions which the WLM confronted in the 1970s. It also demonstrates that future research into the WLM must acknowledge the usefulness of looking at its impact in different areas of the United Kingdom.
