Yes it's been on my mind a fair bit lately. I keep hearing about gay pub's and venues closing such as The Black Cap, and now The Royal Vauxhall Tavern is under threat. I think it's terribly sad, but also sad that there didn't seem to be such fuss, or such media attention, when the women's pubs in London closed. Did we not protest? Or is that they closed for different reasons, in different circumstances? Whatever the reason I do long for a woman's space to spend time in.
Also - with the clamp down on squatting in the UK another source of women-only spaces seems to have disappeared. I used to attend a women-only cafe that happened in various squats around town, I also lived in an all women squat in the late 1990's (in fact that's where the WANcafe I speak of began...) and know of several others as well as other women-only events that used to happen in squats.
