LGBT+ Feminist Movements
These LGBT+ feminist resources were created by TIGER and the Feminist Archive South at the University of Bristol and funded by the Government Equalities Office. The Hatpins to Hashtags project enabled young people to participate in the Centenary of Women’s Suffrage by engaging with women’s activism and the democratic process. In 2018 we engaged over 300 young people to use the Feminist Archive to think critically about gender equality over the last century and draw courage from historical campaigns to make their own voices heard. The workshops were delivered in schools, colleges and youth groups across the South West and young people’s work was displayed alongside our touring exhibition of posters Politics and Protest. These learning opportunities enabled young people to connect LGBT+ and feminist activism through a creative, archival exploration of the Women’s Liberation Movement.
Intersectionality, inclusivity and solidarity
LGBT+ Feminist Movements will share how exploring archives can teach us about the connections between the Gay and Women’s Liberation Movements and stimulate vital discussion about intersectionality, inclusivity and solidarity in activism. This interactive workshop will also demonstrate how creative methods can bring archives to life and mobilise activism, with participants creating their own demands for equality using badge-making as a DIY method for communication.
In workshops delivered by FAS and TIGER, we analysed a range of posters and texts from our exhibition and handling collection. Due to the nature of archives and copyright, the extracts are restricted in these digitally shared resources. However, if you would like the Feminist Archive South to bring this workshop to life with a full range of sources including posters, pamphlets, letters and photographs- get in contact to enquire about our workshop delivery.
