In response to the posters in the exhibition we will be sharing experiences of feminist activism. What has been achieved and what is still to be done? Where do you stand in this debate?
Politics and Protest: Posters from the Women’s Liberation Movement
Drawn from the rich collection of over 1000 posters held by The Feminist Archive South, these posters are testimony to the activist energy of the movement and the determination of women to speak out and organise on their own terms.
This is a free event, but booking is helpful to us so we know how many people to cater for!
