Factory Records has become the stuff of legend. The histories of the label have been told from many perspectives, from visual catalogues and memoirs to exhibitions. Yet no in-depth history has ever been told from the perspectives of the women who were integral to Factory's cultural significance and its success. Factory Records is truly distinctive when it comes to the ways in which women played key roles in nearly every aspect or the label and its ethos.
An oral history with far-reaching and local audiences in mind, speaking broadly to the roles women played in the late twentieth-century culture.
