A first look at our exhibition, Politics and Protest
Ahead of our launch in Glastonbury at the Red Brick Building next week, Trustee and strand leader Sue Tate shared the exhibition with her local community in St. Werburghs, Bristol. The 'sneak preview' was thoroughly enjoyed. People were spontaneously impacted by the dynamism of the posters which immediately generated conversations, memories and debates.
"Politics and Protest: Posters from the Women's Liberation Movement is an exhibition drawn from the Feminist Archive South's rich collection of over 1000. It is testament to the activists of the Women’s Liberation Movement (1970-2000) who spoke out on their own terms and campaigned against discrimination and inequality.
The posters are presented on a series of free standing printed panels, grouped in themes: mobilising the feminist movement, black and transnational feminism, peace activism, young women and girls, taking on the media, LGBT+ activism, women against violence against women and women and work.
The exhibition celebrates the energy of the movement and asks us to think, what has been achieved, what is still to be done?
The posters will be on display at Red brick Building in the Morland Room, from 2nd - 11th September, open daily 11-5pm.
