As part of the People’s History Museum’s look at modern feminism this exhibition will examine the relevance of modern feminism in today’s society. The display will examine the different portrayals of what it means to be a feminist in modern society, including the idea that it is ‘man hating’. It will look at what it really means to be a feminist in 2016 and the issues that feminists are fighting for and against. It aims to disprove the idea that feminism is no longer necessary.
Suitable for all ages
This exhibition is part of Wonder Women, Manchester’s annual feminist festival. From 3-13 March 2016, we celebrate the women’s movement born in our city through film, art, music, walking tours, gallery takeovers, comedy and debate, asking how far we’ve come in 100 years – and how far we have yet to go.
