Hatpins to Hashtags is coming to Bridport from 16th to 25th November, hosted by the Literary & Scientific Institute, with a whole host of events, workshops and opportunities to get involved in.

On Friday 16th between 6.30 and 9.00 join us for the opening of the exhibition Politics and Protest, Posters from the Women's Liberation Movement  and the launch of the Hatpins to Hashtags project in Bridport. 

You can visit the  exhibition in the Court Yard to see inspiring campaigning and celebratory posters from Feminist Archive South's amazing collection  from the 16th to the 25th November 

Our free Feminist Futures workshops for 16-30 year olds, will explore the collection in more depth and look at some of the many ways Feminism is still working to bring about a more positive world for everyone.

On Sunday November 18th take part in a study day on Dorset Women's Activism 1910-1920 hosted by Bridport Museum and organised by the South West and Wales Women's History Network. 

If you want to take action now, we also have free Digital Democracy workshops for women and non-binary people that will show you how you can host your own website and experiment with ways of working cooperatively and inclusively online. All ages over 16 very welcome.

If you'd like to organise your own event, to link with the Hatpins to Hashtags programme, please do get in touch. We'd be very happy to discuss possibilities and promote your event on our website.
