Hatpins to Hashtags Exhibition Launch and Workshops

  • This event has passed.

When: Sunday 02 September

Time: 10:30 am - 5:00 pm

Location: The Event Space


The Feminist Archive South is celebrating 100 years since some women got the right to vote with Hatpins to Hashtags, a programme of free events, workshops and an exhibition creating opportunities for reflection, lively discussion and action on feminist issues now – in the age of the hashtag.

Over the last 100 years, from hatpins to hashtags, women have defended themselves and fought for equal rights with whatever tools are to hand. Celebrating the legacy of suffrage and the Women’s Liberation Movement, Hatpins to Hashtags will bring untold feminist narratives to light and raise awareness of how technology can be used as a tool in grassroots activism.
