Generations of Activism at People’s History Museum (PHM), City Centre, 23 March 2018, free entry
Take part in a day of intergenerational conversation, creativity and banner making at the People’s History Museum inspired by the Feminist Webs Archive; a vast, ever-growing collection of photographs, banners, leaflets, zines, oral ‘her-stories’ and other documents setup by a group of young women and their female youth workers in 2008.
Feminist Webs is a ‘women and girls work space’, born out of the legacy of a national movement of feminist youth workers that sought to address the conditions of young women’s lives. The current organisation aims to revive an explicitly feminist youth work practice, and to encourage active engagement and participation among women of all ages, abilities, sexual orientations, and cultural or ethnic backgrounds.
The Feminist Webs Archive is formed of contributions from older, feminist youth workers and will be available to explore over the course of the day. Its important collection will provide a springboard for discussions around issues such as women and work, the female body, and violence against women.
This event forms part of Wonder Women 2018.
