The Socialist Women’s Group (SWG) was formed in October 1975 after disputes within the Northern Ireland Women’s Rights Movement (NIWRM) on the National question. The SWG took an anti-imperialist line, and, whle critical of the IRA military campaign, believed liberation lay in a united Irish workers’ state. This contrasted with the broader NIWRM, which refused to take a position on the sectarian divide. They were associated with the Relatives Action Committee (RAC), disputes with whom over perceived elitism eventually led to their dissolution in 1977 and the formation of the Belfast Women’s Collective.
