This year we celebrate 100 years since some women won the right to vote in the UK. Despite some advances in gender equality, we still live in a society where:

People of all genders aged 16-30 are invited to a free, interactive creative writing workshop exploring the future of gender equality and activism. Held within an exhibition of striking feminist posters, the workshop will take inspiration from a century of women-led campaigns for gender equality from Votes for Women to Equal Pay and #metoo. 

Experimenting with DIY counter-cultural methods such as cut-up poetry, adaptation and collage we will explore a range of topics including gender stereotyping, sexual harassment, LGBT+ activism and the issues that matter to you. 

Join us for the project launch event in Glastonbury, celebrating the start of our Government Equalities Office funded project Hatpins to Hashtags, marking 100 years since some women got the right to vote and 40 years of Feminist Archive South.  

Drop in or join us all day for a programme of free activities, talks, workshops refreshments and an exhibition creating opportunities for reflection, lively discussion and action on feminist issues now – in the age of the hashtag. 

The software we use is increasingly seen as a political issue, but it’s easy to be distracted by the promises made by easy to use online software. There is an active, global, Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) movement that makes it possible to learn to do almost anything, but the first steps can be the hardest.

How can we start to own and control our data and the online systems we use?
