Hatpins to Hashtags brings an exhibition of dynamic posters from the Women’s Liberation Movement (1978-2000) to share with audiences around the South West.
Drawn from the rich collection of over 1000 posters held by The Feminist Archive South they are testmony to the activist energy of the movement and the determination of women to speak out and organise on their own terms.
Calling women together to campaign, learn, protest and celebrate the posters speak to us now of the burning issues of the time – many of which continue to reverberate today. The posters are inspiring and will also provoke debate: What was achieved? What is still to be done?
Joins us to discuss these questions during events and debates that will accompany the exhibition exploring, for example: what is Feminism? Who is a Feminist? Then, now and into the future.
There will be accompanying workshops, cross generational conversations and panel discussions – look out for the programme for your area that will be posted nearer the time. Local speakers and organisations are invited to bring their concerns and knowledges to the Hatpins to Hashtags table: email firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved.
